New Funding Opportunity: Tribal Youth National Mentoring Program
This solicitation from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention invites applicants to propose national initiatives that will support the development, maturation, and expansion of community programs that provide mentoring services to tribal youth populations on tribal reservations of federally-recognized tribes across the nation that are underserved due to location, shortage of mentors, emotional or behavioral challenges of the targeted population, or other situations identified by the federally-recognized tribes.
All applications are due by 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on Monday, May 17, 2010.
Applicants are limited to national organizations, including tribal, community, secular, and faith-based non-profit organizations, and federally-recognized Indian tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior and published in the Federal Register), that may partner with other such national organizations as subgrantees.
