OJJDP FY 2013 Evaluation of Programs for Tribal Youth


This solicitation will fund one or more evaluation studies to produce findings of practical use to tribal communities, practitioners, administrators, and policymakers in the identification, adaptation, and testing of promising programs, policies, and strategies for tribal juvenile justice and delinquency prevention. OJJDP encourages applicants to propose rigorous evaluation of one or more of the following: (1) replication or adaptation for tribal youth of an evidence-based juvenile justice program model, such as those designated in CrimeSolutions.gov, the OJJDP Model Programs Guide, or other relevant effective model program listings; (2) juvenile justice prevention or intervention program models that incorporate Native American traditional practices; or (3) OJJDP-funded Tribal Youth Program site(s) and/or OJJDP funded Tribal Juvenile Accountability Discretionary Grants Program site(s). This evaluation initiative seeks to further what is known about the experiences, strengths, and needs of tribal youth and how tribal families and communities can design or adapt program strategies to effectively nurture positive development of youth and to reduce their risk for victimization and delinquency. This program will be authorized by an Act appropriating FY 2013 funds for the Department of Justice.
