U.S. Department of Justice Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation

In 2009, based on a series of meetings across the country addressing violent crime in tribal communities, DOJ made the decision to decrease the number of applications tribes and tribal consortia were required to submit to receive grant funds.

In 2010, DOJ launched its first ever Coordinated Tribal

Assistance Solicitation (CTAS), which combined DOJ’s existing Tribal Government–specific competitive solicitations into one and thus required only one application from each tribe or tribal consortium.

This approach provides federally recognized tribes and tribal consortia the opportunity to develop a comprehensive approach to public safety and victimization issues.

Over the past seven years, through numerous meetings, tribal written comments, face-to-face tribal consultations, focus groups, and listening sessions—the latest to occur at the DOJ Tribal Consultation on Violence Against Women on December 6, 2016 and the Indian Nations Conference on December 8-10, 2016, on the reservation of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians—DOJ has continued to further refine CTAS.

In addition, DOJ has circulated an assessment tool to tribes each year to gather feedback about their experiences applying for CTAS.

The Department of Justice is seeking applications for funding to improve public safety and victim services in tribal communities.

This solicitation provides federally recognized tribes and tribal consortia an opportunity to develop a comprehensive and coordinated approach to public safety and victimization issues and to apply for funding.

DOJ’s existing Tribal Government–specific programs are included in and available through this single Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation.
