Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA tribal governments to enhance the safety of residents and provide services to victims in local communities. Applicants are advised that required registration may take several weeks to finalize. 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. The Coordination Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) 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 majority of DOJ’s existing tribal government-specific programs are included in and available through CTAS and are referred to as purpose areas (PA). Below is a list of the seven purpose areas and their components (note: PAs 5 and 7 are officially retired from CTAS):

  • PA #1: Public Safety and Community Policing (COPS Office)
  • PA #2: Comprehensive Tribal Justice Systems Strategic Planning (BJA, COPS Office, OJJDP, OVC)
  • PA #3: Tribal Justice Systems Program (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)

More about each purpose area can be found starting at https://bja.ojp.gov/sites/g/files/xyckuh186/files/media/document/O-BJA-2022-171017.pdf#page=5.
