OJJDP Announces New Funding for Tribal Youth Programs

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has announced that applications are now being accepted for two competitive grant programs: the Tribal Youth Program (TYP) and the Tribal Juvenile Accountability Discretionary Grant (T-JADG) Program.

TYP supports and enhances tribal efforts to prevent and control delinquency and improve tribal juvenile justice systems for American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) youth. T-JADG supports and enhances efforts by federally recognized tribes to develop and implement programs that hold AI/AN youth accountable for their delinquent behavior and that strengthen tribal juvenile justice systems.

Under TYP, OJJDP will award four-year cooperative agreements of up to $400,000. Under T-JADG, OJJDP will award three-year grants of up to $300,000. All awards are subject to the availability of appropriated funds and any modifications or additional requirements that may be imposed by law.

It is anticipated that any awards that may be made under this solicitation should be awarded no later then September 30, 2007. The due date for TYP applications is 8:00 p.m. E.T., January 24, 2007. The due date for T-JADG applications is 8:00 p.m. E.T., January 31, 2007.

Federally recognized tribes are the only eligible applicants under both of these funding opportunities. All applications must be submitted via www.grants.gov.
