FY 2005 OJJDP Tribal Youth Program: The Tribal Youth Program (TYP) supports and enhances tribal efforts to prevent and control delinquency and improve the juvenile justice system for American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) youth. The FY 2005 Consolidated Appropriations Act (P.L. 108-447) appropriates $10 million for the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) Tribal Youth Program. Of the $10 million appropriated for TYP, OJJDP will use 10% of appropriated funds to support program related research, evaluation, and statistics; up to 2% is authorized to provide training and technical assistance to tribal programs; and $8 million for discretionary grants, of which $1 million will be available to fund discretionary programs to support the TYP Mental Health Initiative. Remaining funds will be used to enhance other tribal efforts and for program support. TYP is part of the Indian Country Law Enforcement Initiative, a joint initiative of the U.S. Departments of Justice (DOJ) and the Interior to improve law enforcement and the administration of criminal and juvenile justice in Indian country. Many of the 1.9 million American Indians living on or near Indian lands lack sufficient law enforcement services. Indian communities face chronic underfunding for their justice systems, lack access to meaningful training for law enforcement and justice personnel, and lack comprehensive programs that focus on preventing juvenile delinquency, providing intervention services, and imposing appropriate sanctions. Although violent crime arrest rates have declined throughout the United States, they continue to rise in Indian country. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics= Special Report Violent Victimization and Race, 1993-98 (Rennison, 2001), American Indians experience violent crime at a rate twice that of the general population. Of particular concern to tribes and the federal government, especially OJJDP, is the increasing number of violent crimes committed by and against juveniles in Indian country. Thus, the Indian Country Law Enforcement Initiative and OJJDP seek to address these problems by enhancing law enforcement in Indian country and improving the quality of life in tribal communities. Since fiscal year (FY) 1999, OJJDP has awarded 203 grants and cooperative agreements to tribes throughout the nation to develop and implement culturally sensitive delinquency prevention programs, alcohol and substance abuse prevention programs, interventions for court involved youth, and improvements to the juvenile justice system. Awards will be made only to federally recognized tribes through cooperative agreements for a 3-year budget and project period. Awards will not exceed $225,000 for tribes with 10,000 or fewer residents on or near the reservation, and will not exceed $300,000 for tribes with 10,001 or more residents on or near the reservation.
