Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $99,812)
This applicant proposes to address research gaps identified by tribes in the Pacific Northwest. The NPAIHB will guide an 18-month multi- stakeholder planning process to collaboratively design a study. The tribal-researcher partnership will involve the NPAIHB (lead), tribes in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, Northwest Professional Consortium (NPC) research staff, and the states juvenile justice departments. The study will: (1) identify, test, and expand promising practices that improve juvenile justice systems for tribes in the Pacific Northwest; (2) determine if non-Native justice systems are improving life outcomes for Native youth who interact with these services; and (3) build tribal capacity to access and use data that support quality improvement at the community-level.
