Alcohol Screening and Brief Intervention (aSBI) and CHOICES are evidence-based interventions that hold promise for reducing risky alcohol use for women of reproductive age and the general population. Effectively implementing and sustaining these interventions into standard primary care practice requires training and technical assistance. This program announcement is designed to provide training, technical assistance and capacity building by providing funding to up to two organizations that will work with clinics serving American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) populations to deliver these services.
Eligible applicants should have demonstrated experience working with AI/AN populations and demonstrated knowledge and experience with aSBI and/or CHOICES. The funded organizations will increase their capacity by working with at least 3 primary care clinics serving a patient population that includes at least 50% AI/AN clients and providing primary care services for all adults, including women of reproductive age. The clinic sites may include family practice clinics, internal medicine clinics, sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinics, family planning clinics or obstetrics-gynecology clinics, and though they must serve AI/AN women of reproductive age, the interventions are to be provided for all clinic patients.
The deadline to submit applications is May 24, 2013, 11:59 p.m. U.S. Eastern Standard Time, on www.grants.gov.
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) seeks to establish

(TYPTTA) provider. The award recipient will provide culturally appropriate training,
support, resources, information, and other related technical assistance to OJJDP’s
tribal grantees and all federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribes.
Training and technical assistance will focus on capacity and infrastructure building,
tribal youth-specific programming, and collaboration with OJJDP’s related training
and technical assistance efforts and providers. This program will be authorized
by an Act appropriating FY 2013 funds for the Department of Justice. The deadline

This solicitation will fund one or more evaluation studies to produce findings of
practical use to tribal communities, practitioners, administrators, and policymakers
in the identification, adaptation, and testing of promising programs, policies,
and strategies for tribal juvenile justice and delinquency prevention. OJJDP encourages
applicants to propose rigorous evaluation of one or more of the following: (1) replication
or adaptation for tribal youth of an evidence-based juvenile justice program model,
such as those designated in CrimeSolutions.gov, the OJJDP Model Programs Guide,
or other relevant effective model program listings; (2) juvenile justice prevention
or intervention program models that incorporate Native American traditional practices;
or (3) OJJDP-funded Tribal Youth Program site(s) and/or OJJDP funded Tribal Juvenile
Accountability Discretionary Grants Program site(s). This evaluation initiative
seeks to further what is known about the experiences, strengths, and needs of tribal
youth and how tribal families and communities can design or adapt program strategies
to effectively nurture positive development of youth and to reduce their risk for
victimization and delinquency. This program will be authorized by an Act appropriating
FY 2013 funds for the Department of Justice. The deadline to apply for funding under
this announcement is 11:59 p.m. eastern time on May 14, 2013.
