FY 2015 CTAS IS NOW OPEN.
Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) is now open to federally recognized Tribes and Tribal consortia. Applicants may submit a single application and select from nine competitive grant programs. The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) is offering funding through Purpose Area #1: Tribal Resources Grant Program (TRGP) Hiring and Equipment/Training. The COPS office FY 2015 appropriation is not yet finalized, 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 rehire 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 reflects 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.
