California’s SACJJDP dedicated $2.7 million dollars annually for four years () in federal Title II grant funds for the four priority areas identified in the 2015 State Plan: Aftercare/Reentry, Alternatives to Detention, Diversion, and Delinquency Prevention projects. Additionally, these grant projects incorporate evidence-based practices and strategies (which seek to use effective correctional interventions and data-driven decision-making models) and R.E.D.

The Native American Tribal Youth Program is authorized under the Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act of 2002, Title II Formula Grants. The grant program is open, on a competitive basis, to all federally recognized California Tribal Governments. The grant program is designed to assist Tribal Governments in developing the tools and resources to assist at-risk youth. The grant is built upon the beliefs and values associated with Native American culture as defined by the Gathering Of Native Americans (GONA) principles: Belonging; Mastery; Interdependence; and Generosity.

2015 Title II Tribal Youth Grant Program Descriptions

The Shingle Springs Rancheria Miwok Tribe will implement the Tribal Youth Probation Program (TYPP), staffed by a youth probation officer whose singular focus is to provide rehabilitative measures that incorporate the cultural practices of the Miwok community to at-risk and system involved youth. The TYPP addresses juvenile delinquency and truancy problems among tribal families by increasing the capacity of the tribal justice system. The project provides rehabilitative-focused supervision of probation terms and court ordered case plans, diversion opportunities, cultural assessments, educational opportunities, drug treatment services, compliance incentives, and job training. El Dorado County Superior Court and the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians launched a joint-jurisdictional juvenile court to bring together tribal and county services in one unified proceeding; therefore continuing the partnership of the TYPP and the Court to address the needs of Miwok youth in the juvenile justice system.

The Mechoopda Indian Tribe of Chico Rancheria project focuses on interventions for court-involved youth to reduce, control, and prevent crime and delinquency among tribal youth. Since 2012, the Tribe has offered tutoring, counseling, and mentoring services under the One-on-One Mentoring Program. The Mechoopda Tribe will expand and enhance its existing mentoring program by serving 150 at-risk Native American youth ages 5-17 in Butte County. The project will incorporate Gathering of Native Americans (GONA) principles and improve data collection between the Tribe and the collaborative partners: North Valley Indian Health, Four Winds School, and the Four Winds Office of Indian Education. The overall goal of the project is to reduce juvenile delinquency, drug abuse, truancy, and other high-risk behaviors among youth ages 5 to 17 by providing evidence-based mentoring services.
