Children's Justice Act Partnerships for Indian Communities: Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS)
The Children's Justice Act Partnerships for Indian Communities initiative offers funding, technical assistance, and training to help American Indian and Alaska Native communities develop, establish, and operate programs designed to improve the investigation, prosecution, and handling of cases of child abuse and neglect, and particularly child sexual abuse cases, in a manner which lessens trauma for child victims.
Funds may be used for:
- Staffing costs for personnel involved in the investigation, prosecution, and victim services focused on cases of criminal child abuse and neglect, including prosecutors, law enforcement investigators, child protection services personnel, forensic interviewers, case managers, clinical mental health professionals, pediatric sexual assault nurse examiners, and other victim assistance and allied professionals.
- Coordination, outreach, and awareness efforts
- Needs assessments, strategic planning, development of logic models
- Comprehensive victim assistance, including:
- Trauma-informed counseling for primary victims and secondary victims
- Family and group therapy
- Assistance with emergency food, clothing, and transportation costs
