Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $393,597)
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 Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention provides awards under CTAS Purpose Area 8--Juvenile Healing to Wellness Courts. The overall purpose of this grant program is to support tribes seeking to develop a new Juvenile Healing to Wellness Court to respond to the alcohol and substance use issues of juveniles and young adults under the age of 21.
The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) propose to address drug use and addiction for youth age 21 and younger. The tribe will serve 150 youth through a tribal juvenile wellness court and plans to develop a Juvenile Wellness Court Policies and Procedures Guide that is culturally informed and compatible with CSKT code and court processes.
