Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $392,743)
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. Under Purpose Area 9, Tribal Youth Program, OJJDP seeks to support and enhance tribal efforts to prevent and reduce juvenile delinquency and strengthen a fair and beneficial juvenile justice system response for American Indian and Alaska Native youth. The funding in this purpose area is made available to enable tribes to create, expand, or strengthen approaches along the juvenile justice continuum that can range from prevention to intervention and treatment.
The Shoshone-Bannock Tribal Justice system and its partners will develop a culture-based and financially sustainable Sober Hangout for tribal youth. This program will serve recovering populations of youth ages 10-17, other at-risk youth, and youth entering the court system, and will make available sober volunteer chaperones and a paid full-time volunteer coordinator. The program will also provide ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) or similar training and trauma mitigation to community. CA/NCF
