|Tribal Action Plan (TAP) Development Workshop: A Tribal Law and Order Act Training Initiative
The U.S. Department of Justice and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration are collaborating on a Tribal Action Plan (TAP) Development Workshop to be held January 25-27, 2017, in Columbia, SC. Travel and lodging will be provided by the Office of Legal Education.
The TAP workshop will provide tribes with tools and guidance to help them develop a TAP. The Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010 addresses the development of TAPs and their support of the principle of tribal self-determination. TAPs also provide tribes the opportunity to take a proactive role in the fight against alcohol and substance misuse in their communities.
