Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $649,000)

The Indian Alcohol and Substance Abuse Program (IASAP) provides resources to federally recognized tribal governments to plan and implement comprehensive strategies to reduce and control crime associated with the distribution and abuse of alcohol and other controlled substances. Key objectives include: establishing a multi-disciplinary advisory team to plan and implement the proposed strategy; identifying, apprehending, and prosecuting individuals who illegally transport, distribute, and use alcohol and controlled substances in tribal communities; preventing and reducing methamphetamine, alcohol, and substance abuse-related crimes; increasing coordination among all levels of tribal government and support services; and integrating federal, tribal, state, and local services and culturally appropriate treatment for offenders and their families.

The Fox Valley Technical College is in partnership with: the University of North Dakota, Tribal Judicial Institute; the National Tribal Judicial Center at The National Judicial College; the Tribal Law and Policy Institute; the Alaska Native Justice Center; and CSR, Incorporated. The partners will focus on solution-driven strategies and recommendations that promote collaboration and community involvement to confront alcohol, methamphetamine, and substance abuse in American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. The project will build upon long-established relationships with tribes and tribal organizations, as well as local, state, and federal agencies to develop multi-disciplinary approaches to addressing issues that know no jurisdictional boundaries.
