Subject: Tribal Training and Technical Assistance Program
National Training and Technical Assistance Program for Tribal Youth
Program Grantees, American Indian Tribes, and Alaska Native Communities
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has
issued a Program Announcement for the National Training and Technical
Assistance Program for Tribal Youth Program Grantees, American Indian
Tribes, and Alaska Native Communities. The Notice was published in the
Federal Register on July 19, 2002.
This program will provide training and technical assistance to the
grantees of OJJDP's Tribal Youth Program, American Indian tribes, and
Alaska Native communities. The Tribal Training and Technical Assistance
Program is designed to help tribal communities develop comprehensive,
systemic approaches to reducing juvenile delinquency, violence, and
child victimization and to increasing the safety of tribal communities.
OJJDP invites applications from public and private agencies,
organizations, institutions, and individuals experienced in training and
technical assistance efforts. Private, for-profit organizations must
agree to waive any profit or fee. Joint applications from two or more
eligible applicants are welcome; however, one applicant must be clearly
designated as the primary applicant. To be eligible for consideration,
applicants must strictly adhere to the submission guidelines regarding
page length, layout, and deadlines.
The Tribal Training and Technical Assistance Program will be funded as a
cooperative agreement for 48 months in four 12-month budget periods.
Funding after the initial budget period will depend on grantee
performance, availability of funds, and other criteria established at
the time of the initial award. Up to $800,000 is available to support
the award of a cooperative agreement to a single provider for the
initial 12-month budget period.
