Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $500,000)

CSR, Incorporated will conduct a national evaluation of the Tribal Youth Program's research and evaluation activities since its inception in 1999. The evaluation design includes three basic components. The first component consists of a survey of prior-year grantees, designed to explore what has been accomplished through past funding. The second component consists of a series of interviews with current grantees, designed to describe and strengthen the evaluation designs that these grantees are pursuing. This component will combine an assessment of training and technical assistance needs with interviews that will help us understand how the collaborative process between evaluators and program staff develops and how this process can be strengthened and facilitated. The third and final component will include a series of focus groups we will conduct with past and current grantees and individual interviews we will conduct with key federal stakeholders to identify significant gaps in our knowledge about what works in juvenile justice systems and delinquency prevention among American Indian tribes.NCA/NCF
