Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $299,999)

The St. Croix Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin propose to develop another phase of the Tribal Youth Program Diversion Project to continue to utilize intervention measures to divert juvenile offenders ages 12-17 from the juvenile justice system reducing the number of court-involved tribal youth. The overall goals for the Diversion Project are to 1) reduce, control, and prevent delinquency committed by and against St. Croix Chippewa Youth, and 2) provide intervention for court-involved youth of the St. Croix Chippewa Indian Tribe of Wisconsin. In compliance with the performance measures, the St. Croix Chippewa Tribal Youth Program Diversion Project will provide data demonstrating performance measures prior to implementation, semi-annually during the project, and at the end of the project period.
