2012 Coordinated Tribal Assistance (CTAS)

Archive: FY 2012 CTAS | Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS)


Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) is now closed. The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) is offering funding through Purpose Area 1 Tribal Resources Grant Program (TRGP) Hiring and Equipment/Training. This year $27 million is available through Tribal grant programs administered by COPS to improve public safety and enhance community policing to 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 communities through a broadened comprehensive program. The funding can be used to hire or re-hire sworn career law enforcement officers and Village Public Safety Officers as well as basic equipment and training to assist in the initiation or enhancement of Tribal community policing efforts. The FY 2012 CTAS solicitation 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.

Detailed information for FY2012 CTAS can be found at along with other helpful information and resources.

The COPS Office will continue to update our website and provide Tribes with information and resources that will help enhance the community policing efforts in Tribal communities. You can find the CTAS fact sheet, COPS allowable and unallowable costs as well as guidance for TRGP Hiring and Equipment/Training below and on the Tribal Justice & Safety webpage.
