Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $337,855)
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.
The Pribilof Island Aleut Community of St. Paul Island (ACSPI) provides prevention, intervention, and treatment for youth at-risk of delinquent behaviors. The target population is 58 on-Island youth ages 10 - 18 at-risk of becoming involved in the juvenile justice system. The program will develop a comprehensive Strategic Plan to enhance current Tribal Justice Systems serving juveniles. The program will also develop and provide prevention/intervention services to impact risk factors for delinquency. The current community youth engagement activities will be supplemented with specific therapeutic and support services and alcohol and substance abuse prevention education. In addition, the program will hire project staff; develop and submit the required comprehensive Strategic Plan in partnership with the Planning Committee, which will act as a quality assurance team; begin development of alcohol and substance abuse prevention, treatment activities, and activity therapy activities; support the Youth Tribal Councils development of the Healthy Relationships curriculum, and develop community outreach strategies in partnership with other concerned community entities.
