On June 25, 2020, OJJDP hosted a Tribal Consultation meeting via webinar. Tribal leaders and representatives from across the country provided input on how OJJDP can collaborate with tribes to implement applicable provisions of the Juvenile Justice Reform Act. The consultation also sought to increase tribes' access to juvenile justice funding and create a policy for ongoing coordination with tribes.

This program supports prevention and early intervention strategies for girls who are involved in the juvenile justice system.
Applications submitted by nongovernment organizations should consider the importance of an established partnership (via a memorandum of understanding or analogous document) with public juvenile justice agencies at the local or state level. This will ensure close collaboration around referrals for those girls involved in the juvenile justice system and eligible for services provided by the proposed project.
