Annotation: The Tribal Youth Program (TYP) is the first Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) program dedicated to juvenile delinquency prevention and control and juvenile justice system improvement in Native American communities.
Abstract: TYP is part of the Indian Country Law Enforcement Initiative, a program of the Department of Justice and the Department of the Interior to enhance law enforcement standards and improve the quality of life in Indian Country. Of the $10 million appropriated for TYP in fiscal year 1999, OJJDP will use $1 million to support program-related research, evaluation, and statistics and will provide $200,000 for training and technical assistance to tribal programs and $7.99 million in discretionary grants. The solicitation process for TYP funds is detailed for discretionary grants. Four grant categories are identified: (1) reduce, control, and prevent crime by and against tribal youth; (2) intervene with court-involved tribal youth; (3) improve tribal juvenile justice systems; and (4) develop prevention programs focused on alcohol and drugs.
