The Department of Justice is proud to announce the second year of awards under the Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS). This year, the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services partnered with the Office of Justice of Programs and the Office of Violence Against Women to award over $118 million to American Indian and Alaska Native communities to enhance law enforcement, bolster justice systems, prevent youth substance abuse, address violence against women, serve crime victims, and support other efforts to combat crime. In previous years, tribes seeking funding for more than one of these purposes would need to submit multiple grant applications. Beginning in Fiscal year 2010 and continuing into Fiscal Year 2011, tribes were able to submit a single application while selecting multiple purpose areas, ranging from juvenile justice to violence against women.
The Department of Justice appreciates the tribal leaders and representatives that attended our formal consultation and practitioner sessions in early October 2010 and those of you who provided feedback in through the CTAS assessment or other means. This feedback was critical in developing the Fiscal Year 2011 solicitation.
In 2011, through the CTAS program, COPS made 106 awards in the amount of $35,413,911 to Tribal communities. Tribes received 86 awards, totaling over $31.6 million to support the hiring and equipment needs of Tribal jurisdictions and 20 awards, totaling over $3.7 million to support methamphetamine initiatives within Indian country.
