BIA – Office of Justice Services
The Tribal court assessment (“TCA”) evaluates tribal needs and provide tribes with recommendations for improving their operational activities by following the Tribal Court Performance Standards (TCPS), which are modified to meet the specific needs of tribal courts.
It is up to the Tribal Justice Support (TJS) Directorate to conduct tribal court assessments to ensure justice in tribal forums is properly administered. This process involves the TJS assessment team working with the Tribe collecting and observing documents regarding Tribal constitution, Tribal codes, and court procedures. Once the specific needs of each tribal court are highlighted, then the TJS Directorate can provide strategic action plan that involves hands-on training, recommendations and technical assistance to help strengthen the Tribe’s court system.
TJS can provide one-time funding awards for tribal court trainings, equipment, office furniture, management systems, certain contract positions, consulting services, and alcohol monitoring systems. TJS can also work with 638 Tribes to increase base court funding levels. Tribes may submit one-time funding requests each year. Contact (202) 208-5787 and ask for Tribal Justice Support to obtain more information.
