FY 2015 CTAS IS NOW CLOSED.
Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) is now closed. The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) offered funding through Purpose Area #1: Tribal Resources Grant Program (TRGP) Hiring and Equipment/Training. We anticipate funding to be made available through Tribal grant programs administered by COPS to improve public safety and enhance community policing in federally recognized Tribal jurisdictions with established law enforcement agencies. Purpose Area #1 is designed to expand the implementation of community policing and meet the most serious needs of law enforcement in Tribal Nations through a broadened comprehensive program. The funding can be used to hire or re-hire career law enforcement officers and Village Public Safety Officers as well as procure basic equipment and training to assist in the initiation or enhancement of Tribal community policing efforts. FY 2015 CTAS reflected improvements and refinements from earlier versions based on your feedback during Tribal consultations and listening sessions, from a specially developed assessment tool about the application experience, and from written comments from applicants and grantees.
All awards are subject to the availability of appropriated funds and to any modifications or additional requirements that may be imposed by law.
Detailed information for the now closed FY 2015 CTAS can be found at www.justice.gov/tribal along with other helpful information and resources. You can access the closed 2015 solicitation, as well as sample documents at http://www.justice.gov/tribal/open-sol.html.
The COPS Office anticipates making awards for FY 2015 CTAS by September 30, 2015 and will continue to update our website and provide Tribes with information and resources that will help enhance the community policing efforts in Tribal Nations.
