What Is TYP?

OJJDP's 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.

How Do I Apply?

You must submit your application for funding through the Office of Justice Program's (OJP's) Grants Management System (GMS). Access to this online application system will expedite and streamline the receipt, review, and processing of your request for funding. To learn how to begin the online application process, please see the Step-by-Step Guide in this Program Announcement. A toll-free telephone number (888–549–9901) has been established for you to receive technical assistance as you work through the online application process. If you do not have access to the Internet and still wish to apply, please contact Laura Ansera, Tribal Youth Program Manager, at 202–307–5911.

Who Is Eligible?

Applications are invited from federally recognized tribes. Only federally recognized tribes that have a tribal resolution showing endorsement are eligible to apply. An applicant must attach an unsigned tribal resolution. Before the applicant receives final notice of award, the applicant will be required to submitted a signed copy of the tribal resolution to OJJDP via fax. Failure to submit an official tribal resolution upon request will jeopardize an applicant's chance to receive funding.

If two or more federally recognized tribes apply as a partnership, one tribe must be clearly identified as the "primary agency" and applicants must identify a total service population in the application narrative. Further, each tribe will be required to submit a tribal resolution before receiving final notice of award.

Note: A list of federally recognized tribes appears in volume 68, number 234 of the Federal Register (pp. 68179–68184) (see Appendix C,). To be eligible to apply, a federally recognized tribe cannot have an active TYP grant.
