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 Juvenile Intensive Probation Program will widen the range of services available to youth and their families on the Turtle Mountain Reservation. The Intensive Probation Program will focus on improving parentchild relationships, teaching youth how to choose prosocial peers and understand consequences of negative behavior and respect for ones self, family, community and culture. Probation officers will work with a multi-disciplinary advisory team to implement the program. The program is designed to divert juvenile offenders who need a highly structured, closely supervised program from out-of-home placement or overcrowded juvenile facilities. Program objectives are to protect the community, reduce recidivism, help rehabilitate, and divert juvenile probationers. CA/NCF
