Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS)

This solicitation 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. The Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 CTAS refers to the DOJ’s tribal government-specific competitive grant programs as purpose areas. Applicants may select the purpose areas that best address their tribe’s concerns related to public safety, criminal and juvenile justice, and the needs of victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. Each tribe, tribal consortium, or tribal designee may only submit one 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 different from those activities for which the tribal consortium has applied. NOTE: Purpose Area 8 is for the Youth Healing to Wellness Courts and is funded through OJJDP.
