Program Description

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) envisions a nation and tribal nations where our children are healthy, educated, and free from violence. If they come into contact with the family and juvenile justice system, the contact should be rare, fair and beneficial to them. To meet this vision, tribal juvenile, juvenile and family, or family Healing to Wellness Courts (hereinafter referred to as Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts) provide comprehensive, developmentally appropriate, community-based, and culturally appropriate services for youth who come in contact with the tribal juvenile justice system due to alcohol or other drug use. This program supports efforts of such courts to develop or enhance their capacity to address issues related to youth younger than 21 years old who possess and consume alcohol. Such capacity development and enhancements are for reducing the number of alcohol-related offenses; alcohol-related traffic injuries or fatalities where this age group's use of alcohol may have been a factor; increasing the number of activities to deter underage drinking; increasing the number of youth who participate in activities to deter underage drinking; and decreasing the number of crimes against persons or property where youth younger than 21 consuming alcohol may have been a factor. In addition to supporting program implementation and direct service activities, this initiative will fund a single cooperative agreement to a training and technical assistance provider to support project sites. This program is authorized by 42 USC 3797u et seq. and paragraph (3)(C) under the Juvenile Justice Programs heading of the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2014 P.L. 113-76, 128 Stat. 5, 64.
