To assist the 2010 Tribal Methamphetamine grantees with their projects to address methamphetamines, Strategic Applications International (SAI) will conduct onsite needs assessments, deliver 2-4 regional summits for grantees, and produce tribal meth action plans for each site. A tribal meth fellows program will be developed to serve as content experts and generate white papers on content specific best practices related to reducing the impact of meth as well as mentoring grantees. Grantees will receive training in the three pillars of community policing, how to develop their own needs assessments, mobilize key stakeholders and communities, and design a community- based participatory research model. Training and technical assistance deliverables will include the regional conferences, a COPS Guidebook on Tribal Meth Best Practices, webinars and white papers, and an update to Methpedia.org.

SAI’s primary target audience is federally recognized Native American and Alaskan Native tribes (“Tribes”) that have received grant funding through CTAS. SAI may provide services to non-CTAS grant recipients if funding permits.
