Welcome to the OJJDP Tribal Youth Program Website

This website is a resource for those tribal recipients of OJJDP’s Tribal Youth Program (TYP) and Tribal Juvenile Accountability Discretionary (T-JADG) grants and all Federally recognized tribes seeking to prevent and control delinquency and improve tribal juvenile justice systems.

This Web site is funded through a grant from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), Office of Justice Programs, and U.S. Department of Justice. Neither the U.S. Department of Justice nor any of its components operate, control are responsible for, or necessarily endorse this Web site (including without limitation, its content, technical infrastructure, and plicies, and any services or tools provided). Here tribes can find the latest research on culturally appropriate prevention and intervention strategies for tribal youth, recent news from Indian Country, and links to events and funding opportunities specifically for tribes.

Grantees and Federally recognized tribes can also request web-based resources, individualized technical assistance, or on-site training or technical assistance.
