The Hoopa Valley Tribal Court is making application for funding assistance to support ongoing operations and service expansion under its Adult Tribal Healing to Wellness Court. Through funding under Category 1.C, the population of focus are enrolled citizens of the Hoopa Valley Tribe, American Indian, Alaska Native(AI/AN) and AI/AN citizens enrolled in other tribes living within the jurisdictional boundaries of the Hoopa Valley Tribe. This project intends to increase and standardize services for individuals with Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). While many of these individuals are court involved, services will also be made available to anyone seeking assistance with priority for special populations. The special populations include pregnant women, individuals with or at-risk of HIV/AIDS, older adults caring for a minor child due to foster care involvement, and individuals entering the community from incarceration. The Hoopa Valley Tribe and its reservations are within Humboldt County, CA.

This project utilizes a hub and spoke model to centralize service delivery for Wellness Court participants and increase favorable outcomes as they journey to health. It directly aligns with the BJA priority of “Prebooking” services for high risk individuals by designating the 60% FTE resources needed to assure a full time Behavioral Health Intake Coordinator/Counselor is available for prioritized access to at risk individuals. Similarly, this project requests funding for MAT treatment assistance to help assure individuals working through opioid abuse have the support needed through full recovery. This project will operate from October 1, 2021 through September 30, 2024 with this funding.
