Tribal Action Plan Development Workshop: A Tribal Law and Order Act Training Initiative

Training

The U.S. Department of Justice’s National Indian Country Training Initiative (NICTI), together with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), is pleased to announce the Tribal Action Plan Development Workshop: A Tribal Law and Order Act Training Initiative. This workshop will be held May 8-10, 2018, at the National Advocacy Center in Columbia, South Carolina. Travel and lodging accommodations will be paid for by the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Education. There is no tuition fee.

The Tribal Action Plan (TAP) Training Initiative was established in direct response to the Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010. TAPs support the principle of tribal self-determination and provide tribes the opportunity to take a proactive role in the fight against alcohol and substance misuse in their communities (25 U.S.C. § 2412). This workshop is designed to provide tribes with the tools and guidance to assist in developing a TAP.

The TAP Workshop will be led by experienced faculty and will include sessions focused on: 1) community readiness; 2) resource identification; 3) needs assessment; and 4) strategic plan development. Tribes who are chosen to participate are asked to send a core team of five representatives with responsibility for creating the tribe’s TAP. Suggested disciplines for the Tribal
Coordinating Committee include the following: leadership, behavioral, public or community health; the criminal justice system; and education. Tribes who have participated in a Gathering of Native Americans (GONA) training possess important preparation for the TAP Workshop.

Core Tribal TAP Team members will be required to participate in pre and post workshop technical assistance, attend the entire workshop, and sign a letter of commitment to work with Federal TAP points of contacts and consultants to complete a tribal-specific TAP. Tribes selected to attend the TAP Workshop must adopt a resolution (or legally-equivalent action) to develop and implement a tribal action plan.

Please complete this form for each of your nominees and E-Mail it to the attention of Delores McCarter, Office of Legal Education.

Nominations are due by March 16, 2018.
