U.S. Department of Justice: Coordinated Tribal Assistance SolicitationDeadline: February 25, 2020
The Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) combines the majority of 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. Note: CTAS is not a program, but is the overarching structure under which tribes can apply to eight separate grant programs from five grant making offices through a single application.
Specific competitive grant programs outlined in this CTAS solicitation are referred to as purpose areas. Applicants may apply for funding under the purpose area(s) that best address tribes’ concerns related to public safety, criminal and juvenile justice, and responses to domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, and other crimes.
