U.S. Department of Justice Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation

In 2010, the U. S. Department of Justice (DOJ) launched its first-ever Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation, or CTAS, combining DOJ’s existing Tribal government-specific competitive solicitations into one, and thus requiring only one application from each Tribe or Tribal consortium.

This

approach provides federally-recognized Tribes and Tribal consortia the opportunity to develop a comprehensive approach to public safety and victimization issues.

In 2009, based on a series of meetings across the country addressing violent crime in Tribal communities, the DOJ made the decision to develop CTAS.

Over the past 3 years, through numerous meetings, Tribal written comments, face-to-face Tribal consultation, focus groups, and listening sessions, with the latest having occurred in FY2013 at the Tribal Justice, Safety and Wellness Session held in October 2012 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the DOJ continues to further refine CTAS.

Additionally, DOJ circulated an assessment tool to Tribes in order to gather feedback about their experiences applying for CTAS in FY2011 and 201 2. In FY2012,249 Tribes (individually or as part of a consortium)submitted applications, resulting in the DOJ funding more than 200 grant awards.

The awards covered 10 Purpose Areas, totaling over $101 million.

In all 3years of CTAS, funding was awarded to enhance law enforcement; bolster criminal and juvenile justice systems; prevent youth substance abuse; serve domestic violence, sexual assault, and elder victims; and support other efforts to prevent and control crime.

As in the three previous fiscal years, this FY2013 solicitation refers to DOJ’s Tribal government-specific competitive grant programs as “Purpose Areas.”Applicants may select the Purpose Area(s) that best address Tribes’ concerns related to public safety, criminal and juvenile justice, and the needs of victims/survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and other forms of violence.

In response to a single Tribal or Tribal consortium application requesting funds from multiple Purpose Areas, multiple awards may be made.

Purpose Areas may be funded and administered by different DOJ program offices (see Part C “Purpose Areas—Snapshot,” which identifies the DOJ program office that manages each Purpose Area).DOJ anticipates that grants will be managed by the awarding DOJ program office.

In some cases, Tribes may receive two separate awards under a single Purpose Area application for activities that fall under different funding streams that have been combined for the purpose of the application.

Tribes or Tribal consortia receiving grants from multiple funding streams must maintain the grant funds separately and file all required reports for each awarded grant with the applicable DOJ component.

Changes to DOJ grant programs enacted with the passage of the Tribal Law and Order Act (TLOA) continue to be incorporated into this solicitation.

For more information regarding TLOA, visit http://www.justice.gov/tribal/tloa.html.

The coordinated approach for funding applies only to requests for FY2013 grant funding made in response to this solicitation, specifically for federally-recognized Tribes and Tribal consortia.

Tribes or Tribal consortia may be eligible for and are encouraged to submit separate applications to any additional non-Tribal government-specific DOJ grant programs for which they may be eligible.
