The goal of the Youth Aftercare cooperative agreement is to help AI/AN youth pursue and sustain safety, sobriety, and employability after release from a Youth Regional Treatment Center (YRTC).
While aftercare support services may not exist in a youth’s home community, the YRTC can lead the
development of effective aftercare methods.
The YRTC Aftercare cooperative agreement awardee (“awardee”) will pursue the above stated goal in each American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) client who separates from their respective YRTCs.
In addition to the stated goal, a focus of this funding opportunity is to understand and overcome aftercare management and performance barriers that affect the capacity of YRTCs and the IHS to develop effective and responsive solutions within the scope of the AI/AN Youth Continuum of Care (CoC), given AI/AN youth’s behavioral health treatment requirements.
