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 2023 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.

This year's program had one open solicitation: “Improving Public Safety and Criminal Justice for Native Americans and Addressing the Crisis of Missing Indigenous People”

The COPS Office will provide funding to an organization that demonstrates well-established experience in developing and delivering direct technical assistance to law enforcement personnel and criminal justice professionals to develop Tribal Community Response Plans (TCRPs) for missing person cases that establish a collaborative response from Tribal Governments, law enforcement, and other partners through culturally appropriate guidelines.
