Defending Childhood American Indian/Alaska Native Policy Initiative: Supporting Trauma-Informed Juvenile Justice Systems for Tribes
This solicitation directly addresses several recommendations included in Ending Violence So Children Can Thrive, a report from the Attorney General's Advisory Committee on American Indian/Alaska Native Children Exposed to Violence. These recommendations call for tribal alternatives to detention, including use of facilities where children and youth can find safety and easily access services (safe houses); development or revision of tribal juvenile codes to promote trauma-informed, culturally specific and individually tailored care for youth; and wider application of culturally adapted, evidence-based, trauma-informed screening, assessment, and treatment services in tribal juvenile justice and related systems.
Smart on Juvenile Justice: Age of Criminal Responsibility Training and Technical Assistance
This initiative will fund training and technical assistance for states that automatically classify all 17 year olds as adults for justice system purposes, including two states that do the same for all 16 year olds. This solicitation is part of OJJDPs Smart on Juvenile Justice initiative, which encourages systemwide reform to reduce the use of out-of-home placement, improve youth outcomes, and reduce reoffending.
