ABOUT THE TRIBAL RESOURCES GRANT PROGRAM-TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE (TRGP-TA)

The Fiscal Year 2022 Tribal Resources Grant Program—Technical Assistance (TRGP–TA) funds are used to support tribal law enforcement agencies through training and technical assistance efforts around community policing topics. The 2022 TRGP–TA program will fund projects that develop knowledge, increase awareness of effective community policing strategies, increase the skills and abilities of law enforcement and community partners, increase the number of law enforcement agencies and relevant stakeholders using proven community policing practices, and institutionalize community policing practice in routine business.

The FY22 Tribal Resources Grant Program—Technical Assistance (TRGP–TA) program solicitation has one open solicitation, with two subcategories:

  • Tribal Community Response Plans (TRCP) for Missing Indigenous Persons Technical Assistance Project

    Through this initiative, the COPS Office aims to improve responses to emergent missing Indigenous persons cases through the development of community response plans for missing indigenous persons, and thereby establishing a collaborative response from Tribal Governments, law enforcement, and other partners through culturally appropriate guidelines.

  • Public Law 280 Training Program for Enhanced Collaborative Law Enforcement Update

    Through the Public Law 280 Resource for Enhanced Collaborative Law Enforcement Update project, the COPS Office would like to update and revise (or replace entirely) this online resource to capture recent changes and updates to P.L. 280 that impact the field.
