On June 25, 2020, OJJDP hosted a Tribal Consultation meeting via webinar. Tribal leaders and representatives from across the country provided input on how OJJDP can collaborate with tribes to implement applicable provisions of the Juvenile Justice Reform Act. The consultation also sought to increase tribes’ access to juvenile justice funding and create a policy for ongoing coordination with tribes. A consultation framing paper outlines the questions OJJDP posed to tribes to help strengthen partnerships and expand programs and services that benefit tribal youth.
A recording of the webinar will be posted to OJJDP’s Tribal Youth Programs and Services website. Tribal Youth Initiatives Fact Sheet here.
