U.S. Department of Justice Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation

U.S. Department of Justice Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation – The Department of Justice launched its Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) in Fiscal Year 2010 in direct response to concerns raised by tribal leaders about the Department’s grant process that did not provide the flexibility tribes needed to address their criminal justice and public safety needs. In Fiscal Year 2015 awarded CTAS grants to 206 American Indian tribes, Alaska Native villages, tribal consortia and tribal designees. The grants will provide more than $98 million to enhance law enforcement practices and sustain crime prevention and intervention efforts in nine purpose areas including public safety and community policing; justice systems planning; alcohol and substance abuse; corrections and correctional alternatives; violence against women; juvenile justice; and tribal youth programs. Current Closing Date for Applications: February 23, 2016.
