This NOFO is intended to help tribes or tribal consortia make improvements that will benefit children and families in their communities and generate knowledge that will be useful throughout the nation. To maximize the benefit of these grants, CB expects that information and knowledge generated by the projects and activities will be shared with the field and efforts will be made to integrate project knowledge and lessons learned into policy and practice. Grant recipients will be asked to share information about the overall structures of their courts to help other potential courts gauge potential lessons learned. Structures includes information like the models of representation and judicial practice. TCIP projects will work with CB to disseminate their individual project products and findings and work with the other TCIP projects to disseminate cross-grant products and findings, where applicable.
