Agency Solicitation:

With the solicitation, DOJ 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 apply for funding to aid in developing a comprehensive and coordinated approach to public safety. Many of DOJ’s existing tribal government-specific programs are included in and available through this single Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS).


Additional Notes:

The Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 CTAS refers to the DOJ’s tribal government-specific competitive grant programs as purpose areas (PA). Applicants may select the PA(s) that best address their tribe’s concerns related to public safety, criminal and juvenile justice, and the needs of victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking.

Each tribe, tribal consortium, or tribal designee may only submit one application. A tribe may apply as part of a consortium and also submit its own independent application provided that the independent application is for funding of activities that are different from those activities for which the tribal consortium has applied.
Following are the seven PAs and their DOJ components:

PA 1: Public Safety and Community Policing Tribal Resources Grant Program – Hiring and Equipment/Training [Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office)]
PA 2: Tribal Justice Systems Strategic Planning Program [Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), COPS Office, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), Office for Victims of Crime (OVC)]
PA 3: Tribal Justice Systems Program (BJA)
PA 4: Tribal Justice System Infrastructure Program (BJA)
PA 6: Children’s Justice Act Partnerships for Indian Communities (OVC)
PA 8: Youth Healing to Wellness Courts (OJJDP)
PA 9: Tribal Youth Program (OJJDP)

Note that, in FY 2024, PAs 5 and 7 are not included in CTAS.
