Request a Grant Writer

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: 

  •  PA #1 Public Safety and Community Policing (COPS Office)
  •  PA #2 Comprehensive Tribal Justice Systems Strategic Planning Program
  •  PA #3 Tribal Justice Systems (BJA)
  •  PA #4 Tribal Justice System Infrastructure Program (BJA)
  •  PA #6 Children's Justice Act Partnerships for Indian Communities (OVC)
  •  PA #8 Juvenile Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts (OJJDP)
  •  PA #9 Tribal Youth Program (OJJDP)

Please see purpose area specific section for goals, objectives and deliverables for each purpose area in the first document listed in Supporting Documents below.

Pre-Application Information:

- Applications will be submitted in Grants.gov by April 20, 2021 at 9:00 pm EST.
- The full application will be submitted in JustGrants by Monday, March 29, 2021 at 9:00 pm EST.

Applications will be submitted to DOJ in a NEW two-step process.
- Step 1: Applicants will submit an SF-424 and an SF-LLL in Grants.gov at https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/register.html. To register in Grants.gov, applicants will need to obtain a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) and System for Award Management (SAM) registration or renewal.
- Step 2: Applicants will submit the full application including attachments in JustGrants at JustGrants.usdoj.gov. To be considered timely, an application must be submitted by the application deadline using JustGrants, and the applicant must have received a validation message from Grants.gov that indicates successful and timely submission. OJP urges applicants to submit applications at least 72 hours prior to the application due date to allow time for the applicant to receive validation messages or rejection notifications from Grants.gov.

If internet access is not available to submit an application electronically, contact the Response Center no later than Friday, February 26, 2021, to request instructions on how to submit an application using alternative means.

Each tribe or tribal consortium may submit only one CTAS application. An application can include proposals for project funding under one or more purpose areas. As such, multiple awards may be made in response to a single 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 distinct from those activities for which the tribal consortium has applied.

In addition to applying for FY 2021 CTAS funding, federally recognized tribes and tribal consortia are encouraged to submit separate applications to any DOJ grant program for which they may be eligible.
