Abstract: The day-long conference on July 1, 2003, at the Navajo Nation Museum and Library in Window Rock, AZ, is reviewed. The conference brought together Indian tribes to discuss their community challenges, including high rates of domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, alcohol abuse, and gang involvement. The conference also offered the first-ever tribal videoconference held in Indian Country. Hundreds of individuals nationwide participated in the videoconference, which was viewed by groups in 108 sites in 32 States. New publications offered by OJJDP are summarized, and are available for viewing and downloading at OJJDP’s Web site. The recent reorganization of OJJPD is outlined. The reorganization effort resulted in three program divisions: State Relations and Assistance, Child Protection, and Demonstration Programs. OJJPD also has an Office of Policy Development. Funding updates are also provided in this newsletter, including a solicitation for applications to assemble a Girls Study Group. Statutory and regulatory changes in formula and block grant programs offered under the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 2002 are briefly outlined. Training sessions concerning these changes were held in July and August of 2003; change will take effect October 1, 2003. Finally, upcoming events by OJJDP are highlighted.
