Tribes will implement a variety of programs to improve the way in which child sexual abuse cases are handled in Indian country. Examples of some of the activities are: development of written protocols between agencies to minimize the number of child interviews and improve case management; provision of child advocacy in the court process; reduction in the amount of time required to investigate cases of child sexual abuse; revision of tribal codes to include child abuse; establishment of special multidisciplinary child interviewing teams; provision of specialized training for investigators and judicial personnel; and hiring of staff to increase the numbers of child sexual abuse cases prosecuted in tribal, State, and Federal courts. CJA funds will also be used for training and technical assistance for tribes in implementing the grants awarded.
This section indicates the different types of projects which have been funded in the past. Only projects funded under Project Grants or Direct Payments for Specified Use should be listed here.
