Request a Grant Writer

Grant to an Alaska business, nonprofit, or institution of higher education, including tribal organizations, for programs that benefit Alaska Native youth. Funding is intended to support training and technical assistance to organizations and sites serving Alaska Native villages. The goal of the program is to build the capacity of tribal communities across Alaska to address the specific needs and challenges of those who work with Alaska Native youth, who are no more than 18 years of age.

OJJDP seeks a training and technical assistance provider to establish a regional network of partnerships to develop strategies to address Alaska Native youth's cultural needs and support their successful functioning at home, in school, and in the community. OJJDP expects the successful applicant to serve as the primary training and technical assistance provider for all OJJDP-funded tribal programs for youth in Alaska.

The objectives of the project are:

  • To provide tools and practical techniques for working across disciplines to facilitate information sharing, communication, and coordination of balanced approaches and data-driven strategies to address youth needs and promote an increase in protective factors to help prevent delinquency.
  • To develop and provide culturally competent, community-driven, and data-driven technical assistance to assist communities in preventing and addressing issues related to delinquency.
  • To facilitate peer-to-peer consultation and networking between villages and communities to promote problem solving and innovation through the exchange of information and ideas.

The successful applicant should demonstrate the ability to provide or subcontract training and technical assistance for tribal youth-specific programming, including efforts to create, expand, or strengthen tribally driven approaches along the juvenile justice continuum that can range from prevention to intervention and treatment. The successful applicant should also be able to deliver training and technical assistance focused on the following areas: strategic planning and program design, improvement or establishment of data collection systems, partnership development, and sustainability planning. 

In addition, the successful applicant should demonstrate their knowledge and experience in identifying experts to build local capacity for the development and implementation of local strategic plans that use multidisciplinary partnerships, balanced approaches, and data-driven strategies; providing logistics to support training and technical assistance activities; developing and disseminating training materials; and conducting evaluations of training.
