Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $2,030,094)

This award will support the provision of 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 Center will provide culturally, trauma-informed, and developmentally appropriate training, technical assistance, resources, and information to OJJDP funded tribal grantees and federally recognized tribes (FRT) across the United States, supporting OJJDP in strengthening tribal relations toward implementation of the Tribal Law and Order Act and fulfilling the recommendations from the Tribal Law and Order Commission and Defending Childhood Initiative. The proposed Center will build opportunities, in partnership with OJJDP, to address the current challenges and needs of tribal communities to develop, expand, improve, and/or maintain juvenile justice systems; through targeted and broad-based training and technical assistance, supporting best practices in policy, programming, and evaluation.

Using both upstream and downstream approaches, the Center will target three primary audiences. 1) Targeted training and technical assistance will directly support OJJDP tribal grantees in meeting unique developmental needs for OJJDP grant programming and improvement, including support in Tribal Action Plans 2) Broad training and technical assistance opportunities will be provided to all tribes to support wide-spread dissemination of best practices in juvenile justice prevention and intervention. 3) Training provided to OJJDP and related leadership, policy-makers, and workforce on topics related to trauma-informed care, while supporting OJJDP in implementing the Tribal Law and Order Act, in coordination with federal partners and tribes.

This award will support the provision of 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 Center will provide culturally, trauma-informed, and developmentally appropriate training, technical assistance, resources, and information to OJJDP funded tribal grantees and federally recognized tribes (FRT) across the United States, supporting OJJDP in strengthening tribal relations toward implementation of the Tribal Law and Order Act and fulfilling the recommendations from the Tribal Law and Order Commission and Defending Childhood Initiative.

The OJJDP Tribal Youth Training and Technical Assistance (T/TA) Center has been established at the Indian Country Child Trauma Center (ICCTC) to develop and offer a comprehensive menu of T/TA based on the value of indigenous knowledge, scholarship, and technology. The team is mobilized to immediately implement a tier level of T/TA to OJJDP tribal grantees plus all federally-recognized tribes to develop sustainable tribal-based/indigenous tribal strategic plans that more effectively and efficiently address the long term issues of trauma, violence, and resulting delinquency issues.
The Center will leverage existing TTA nationally, while implementing a targeted program to build tribal capacity to develop, expand, improve, restructure, and/or maintain their juvenile justice systems. In addition to broad T/TA that has the ability to support all tribes, focused TTA will be provided to OJJDP grantees using onsite, online, and multimedia modality activities promoting cross-site peer-to-peer replication of best practices. National strategies will support youth leadership and wide-spread education and policy advancement for tribal juvenile justice. Dissemination efforts will include trauma informed juvenile program guidelines and codes; training materials; webinars; policy and practice reports; social marketing campaign and resources; and tools to support the replication and sustainability of effective practices. All training and technical assistance will be evaluated for quality improvement. No research or IRB requirements will be part of the training and technical assistance delivery method. However maintaining a successful T/TA Center geared toward quality improvement is possible by utilizing post survey methods, solicitation of on-going feedback, and reassessing routinely to all activities. Simultaneous upstream-and-downstream approaches will maximize the impact of the Center on juvenile justice law and policy, toward improved meaningful outcomes for tribal youth.
