What is CTAS?

FY 2022

The Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) combines the majority of DOJ’s existing Tribal Government–specific competitive solicitations into a single solicitation requiring only one application from each tribe or tribal consortium. This approach provides federally  recognized tribes, tribal consortia, and tribal designees the opportunity to develop a comprehensive approach to public safety and victimization issues.  (Source:  DOJ site)

General Fact Sheet for FY 2022 coming soon.

The overall purpose of Purpose Area #3 is to provide key funding to Tribal justice systems to develop, support, and enhance adult and juvenile Tribal justice systems and the prevention of violent crime and crime related to opioid, alcohol, and other substance abuse.
