Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $303,508)
The Justice Department's grant-making components have created a streamlined approach for federally recognized Tribes, Tribal consortia, Alaska Native villages and corporations, as well as authorized tribal designees to apply for Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 funding opportunities. The Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) serves as a single solicitation for existing tribal government-specific grant programs administered by the Office of Justice Programs (OJP), the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) and the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW). The CTAS solicitation is designed to assist tribes with addressing crime and public safety issues in a comprehensive manner. The CTAS grant-application process was inspired by and developed after consultation with tribal leaders, including sessions at the Justice Department's Tribal Nations Listening Session in 2009, and has been updated based on continued tribal consultations and listening sessions. The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) provides awards under CTAS Purpose Area 9--Tribal Youth Program (TYP) to federally recognized tribes to develop and implement programs that support and enhance Tribal efforts to prevent and control juvenile delinquency and strengthen juvenile justice system for American Indian/Alaska Native youth.
This grant award will allow the Inchelium Club of the Colville Tribe to expand services and make essential connections with the tribal police. The Club will work with youth in other districts to help close the service gaps. The award will increase staffing at the Club to allow for it to be operational on the weekends. The award will also allow the Club to implement the nationally renowned SMARTMoves and MethSMART programs from BGCA, develop a strategic partnership with the Colville Tribal Police, host youth forums during the summer and expand drug prevention lessons.
