This year’s Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) is now open to federally recognized Tribes. This includes Alaska Native villages and Tribal consortia consisting of two or more federally-recognized Indian Tribes.

The COPS Office offers funding through Purpose Area #1: Tribal Resources Grant Program (TRGP) Hiring and Equipment/Training, however CTAS enables Tribes, Alaska Native villages, and Tribal consortia to submit a single application for nine of the Department of Justice’s competitive grant programs.

Applications for CTAS are submitted through the DOJ's Grants Management System (GMS). Applicants must register with GMS prior to submitting an application. The application deadline is 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time (ET), February 23, 2016.
