Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $900,000)

The Tribal Court Assistance Program (TCAP) and the Indian Alcohol and Substance Abuse Program (IASAP) Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) provides support to federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribal governments that have received grants through the CTAS Purpose Area (PA) 3: Tribal Justice Systems, and Alcohol and Substance Abuse. The primary goal of TCAP and IASAP TTA is to assist CTAS PA 3 grantees in meeting the goals and objectives of their grant funding through proactive, comprehensive, user-friendly TTA services which are culturally relevant.

IASAP TTA assists tribal grantees and the field at large in planning and implementing culturally relevant comprehensive strategies to reduce and control crime associated with alcohol and drug abuse, including: prevention; law enforcement; criminal justice diversion programming; community supervision of individuals with substance abuse treatment needs; and treatment provision within the community, during incarceration and throughout the reentry process. The TTA provider will also assist tribes seeking assistance with the development and implementation of tribal action plans (TAPs) as defined in the Tribal Law and Order Act. The IASAP TTA provider will serve as a national resource regarding culturally relevant alcohol and substance abuse programs on tribal lands and in tribal communities, including but not limited to: evidence-based alcohol and substance abuse prevention; risk and needs assessment development and implementation; evidence-based alcohol and substance abuse treatment; and responding to and preventing alcohol- and substance abuse-related crimes.
