Grants to USA tribes to enhance the safety of residents in local communities. Applicants are advised to submit applications several days before the deadline. Funding is intended to support programs addressing issues in the areas of public safety, juvenile and criminal justice, and responses to domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, and other crimes.
CTAS combines the majority of DOJ’s existing Tribal Government–specific competitive solicitations into a single solicitation requiring only one application from each tribe or tribal consortium. This approach provides federally recognized tribes, tribal consortia, and tribal designees the opportunity to develop a comprehensive approach to public safety and victimization issues.
Note: CTAS is not a program but is the overarching structure, under which tribes can apply to eight separate grant programs, from five grant-making offices, through a single application.
The DOJ specific competitive grant programs outlined in this CTAS solicitation are referred to as purpose areas, listed below:
For more information on the purpose areas above, see the following link:
