Department of Justice 2017: Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) Initiative

Deadline: 28 February 2017

The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) is seeking applications for its initiative “Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS)” to develop and strengthen tribal justice systems’ response to crime, while significantly increasing programs and services available to them.

CTAS is administered by the DOJ’s Office of Community Oriented Policing (COPS), Office of Justice Programs (OJP) and the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), which manage awards by Purpose Area, subject to available funding.

American Indians and Alaska Natives experience disproportionate rates of violence and victimization and often encounter significant obstacles to identifying and accessing culturally-relevant services.
