The OJJDP Family Drug Court Program seeks to build the capacity of state and local courts, units of local government, and federally recognized tribal governments to enhance existing family drug courts or implement statewide or countywide family drug court practices that increase collaboration with substance abuse treatment and child welfare systems to ensure the provision of treatment and other services for families that improve child, parent, and family outcomes.


ALERT:  2-week extension: 4/8/2020

This solicitation provides funding to address the needs of child victims and their families in Alaska through a multidisciplinary team response to child abuse cases.

Because of the rural nature of Alaska, there are many unique needs and challenges when it comes to the investigative response to cases of child abuse and providing the necessary treatment services for victims. Alaska has developed and is using the Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) model to respond to cases of serious physical and sexual child abuse. These CACs exist in strategic locations throughout the state; however, there is a need for further coverage and enhancement of services offered by these CACs.


Pre-recorded webinar:  Held on February 26, 2020, the OJJDP FY 2020 Tribal Children’s Advocacy Center Expansion Initiative for Child Abuse Victims Solicitation Webinar provided a general overview of the OJJDP FY 2020 Alaska Children’s Advocacy Center Initiative for Child Abuse Victims Solicitation. It highlighted key eligibility and solicitation requirements, and identified tools and resources for applicants that will facilitate the application process. Lastly, it provided an opportunity for applicants to ask questions. 

This program supports the implementation and delivery of mentoring services to youth populations that are at risk for juvenile delinquency, victimization, and juvenile justice system involvement. Mentoring services can be one-on-one, group, peer, or a combination of these types. Applicants in all categories must initiate mentoring services to youth who are 17 years old or younger at the time of admission to the program. Funding can be used to support new mentoring matches or continue existing mentoring matches at the time of application.


ALERT:  2-week extension

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 in order to build the capacity of tribal communities across Alaska to address the specific needs and challenges of those who work with Alaska Native youth. 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.
