Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $269,055)

The FY 2009 Indian Alcohol and Substance Abuse Program (IASAP) provides funding and technical assistance to federally recognized tribal governments to plan, implement, or enhance tribal justice strategies to address crime issues related to alcohol and substance abuse. Key IASAP objectives include: developing a project activity team; identifying, apprehending, and prosecuting 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 law enforcement led strategies which focus on controlling and preventing alcohol & substance abuse), traffic fatalities, and injuries; developing and enhancing collaborations with federal, state, tribal, and local criminal justice agencies; integrating tribal and non-tribal services for offenders and their families; and making available culturally appropriate treatment and other services.

The Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe will ensure the continuity of traditions and culture while maintaining its sovereignty and self-determination by developing a 3-year Tribal Safety Strategic Plan to address alcohol and substance abuse. The Tribe will train tribal justice and other appropriate staff to implement and run an adult court compliance/offender treatment division as an alternative to incarceration. An advisory board comprising tribal government officials, law enforcement, health and judicial staff will manage the project. The advisory board will be co-chaired by the Public Safety Director, Court Administrator, and Wellness Coordinator who will be responsible for issuing written progress and fiscal reports on a regular schedule to keep all interested parties apprised of the coordinated effort of moving forward toward the goal of reducing and preventing alcohol and substance abuse among the members of the Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe.
