Annotation: This report addresses each of the four goals and the results of the Research on Native American Juvenile Justice Project, implemented in November 1990: (1) identify those tribes eligible to receive Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) funds, (2) advise eligible tribes regarding the availability of JJDP funds and the nature of JJDP's funding requirements, (3) collect and present data about California's Native American tribes, and (4) develop options to assist the Juvenile Justice State Advisory Group in developing plans for the most appropriate use of JJDP funds.
Abstract: All four goals of the Research on Native American Juvenile Justice Project were realized. A portion of the JJDP passthrough funds are to be made available to all of California's 102 tribes. Tribal leadership was advised in December 1990 about the sources, purpose, availability, and amount of the JJDP funds as well as the nature of their distribution and funding requirements. Considerable information has been collected about the Native American youth population including identification of four areas of most serious unmet need: alcohol abuse services, recreational activities, drug abuse services, and job training and placement services. Tribal representatives strongly recommend that the JJDP passthrough funds be made available to an organization to be designated by and to represent a group of individual tribes. 1 figure, 8 tables, 2 references, and 7 appendixes
