Department of Justice - Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation FY23 - Deadline - 3/21/23
U.S. Department of Justice Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation Fiscal year 2023
CTAS combines many of the Department of Justice’s (DOJ’s) existing tribal government-specific competitive solicitations into a single solicitation requiring only one application from each tribe or tribal consortium. This approach reduces the number of applications required to access funding and provides federally recognized tribes, tribal consortia, and tribal designees the opportunity to develop a comprehensive approach to tribal justice, public safety, and victimization issues. Note: CTAS is not a program but a single solicitation to allow tribes to apply to seven separate grant programs from four grant-making offices.
FY 2023 CTAS Changes from Solicitations Issued in Previous Years:
Text from the template is no longer included in the narrative’s page limit.
Purpose Area 9 awards can be used to serve youth up to age 21.
Purpose Area 9 has three categories that tribes can apply for, including a two-year strategic planning award added in FY 2022.
Please review information about each category carefully.
Purpose Area 8 funding may be used to expand the treatment workforce for Juvenile Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts.
Each tribe or tribal consortium may submit only one CTAS application. This application can include proposals for project funding under one or more purpose areas (PAs). As such, multiple awards may be made in response to a single application.
