This award is to provide training and technical assistance to tribal grantees and federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribes. This program furthers the Department's mission by providing culturally appropriate training, support, resources, information, and other related technical assistance around tribal youth needs and issues.
The Education Development Center, Inc. will operate the OJJDP Tribal Youth Program Training and Technical Assistance Center (The Center). The Center will provide capacity and infrastructure-building TTA services to eligible tribes and tribal grantees to support sustainable high quality youth and family services, through strategic planning, resource development and inter- and intra-tribal service coordination. The Center will develop communities of practice that build inter and intra-tribal capacity and infrastructure, disseminate successful strategies, and advance intertribal relations. This project aims to provide information, reports and materials to support knowledge development and collaboration among tribal communities and federal, state and local stakeholders. CA/NCF
