Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $203,621)

The FY 2007 Indian Alcohol and Substance Abuse Program allows American Indian and Alaska Native communities to plan and implement activities that will reduce and control crime associated with the distribution and use of alcohol and controlled substances in tribal communities. Through this program, the recipient will develop new or enhance existing strategies that prevent, interdict, and treat alcohol and drug use by tribal members. Awards will be used to develop a project activity team; identify, apprehend, and prosecute those who illegally transport, distribute, and use alcohol and controlled substances; prevent and reduce the number of alcohol and substance-abuse-related crimes (with a priority on methamphetamine), traffic fatalities, and injuries; develop and enhance collaborations with federal, state, tribal, and local criminal justice agencies; integrate tribal and non-tribal services for offenders and their families; and make available culturally appropriate treatment and other services.

The Kalispel Tribe will use these funds to strengthen the administrative and operational capacity of the Tribal Public Safety Department and Tribal Court to address crime that is specifically related to alcohol and substance abuse, including methamphetamine. Specifically, the Kalispel Tribe will create a drug task force and develop drug policies that address the specific needs of the Kalispel community; enhance prevention and treatment services for people suffering from alcohol and substance abuse; hire an all Heals Circle Coordinator; provide training; and purchase equipment. In addition, funds will allow the Kalispel Tribe to provide the appropriate treatment and counseling that meet the specific cultural and spiritual needs of the Kalispel community.
