DOJ accepting applications for the Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation
The Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) is now accepting applications for the FY 2021 Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS). As described in the funding opportunity announcement (FOA), the purpose of CTAS is to provide 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. CTAS is not a program but a single solicitation under which tribes can apply to seven separate grant programs to reduce the number of applications required to access funds. The solicitation covers the Public Safety and Community Policing program, Comprehensive Tribal Justice Systems Strategic Planning program, Tribal Justice Systems Program, Tribal Justice System Infrastructure Program, Children’s Justice Act Partnerships for Indian Communities, Juvenile Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts, and the Tribal Youth Program. Applications are due March 16, 2021.
