Grants to USA tribal governments to enhance the safety of residents and victim services in local communities. Interested applicants are advised to submit applications several days before the deadline. Funding is intended to support programs that address issues in the areas of public safety, juvenile and criminal justice, and responses to domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, and other crimes.
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is seeking applications for funding to improve public safety and victim services in tribal communities.
American Indians and Alaska Natives experience disproportionate rates of violence and victimization and often encounter significant obstacles to identifying and accessing culturally relevant services. Tribal grants funded through the CTAS process help tribes to develop and strengthen tribal justice systems’ response to crime, while significantly increasing programs and services available to them. The tribes are using these funds to enhance law enforcement, combat domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and sex trafficking, bolster justice systems, prevent and control juvenile delinquency, strengthen the juvenile justice system, serve sexual assault and elder victims, and support other efforts to address crime.
CTAS is not a program but is a single solicitation, under which tribes can apply to seven separate grant programs, from four grant-making offices, through a single application. This solicitation thus 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 and victimization.
The DOJ-specific competitive grant programs outlined in this CTAS are referred to as “purpose areas.” Below is a list of the seven purpose areas and their components:
Please see purpose area specific section for goals, objectives and deliverables for each purpose area in the first document listed in Supporting Documents below.
