Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $416,030)
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. Under Category 1, funding supports tribes that propose to develop a new tribal youth program.
This project will serve youth younger than age 18 living in Sand Point. It will include the implementation of a culturally relevant afterschool program and outreach to youth who are experiencing a high number of adverse childhood experiences and/or exposure to substance abuse and/or violence. Staff will be trained to effectively work with youth exposed to trauma and to use restorative practices to prevent and address delinquent behaviors. CA/NCF
