This program offers grants to engage in comprehensive justice system-wide strategic planning and direct service program implementation to improve tribal justice and safety, including community wellness and the capacity to prevent crime.

This CTAS Purpose Area is designed to initiate a broad assessment of a tribe's current justice system and to then produce and implement a comprehensive plan to further develop and enhance that justice system. The plan should identify priority needs and outline a detailed, strength-based, victim centered strategic planning strategy that includes:

  • Law enforcement
  • Courts
  • Community corrections
  • Alternatives to incarceration
  • Tribal jails programming
  • Rights and services for all victims of crime including services to promote safety for victims of child abuse, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking
  • Juvenile justice programs
  • Improving public safety

Specific objectives and required deliverables may be found in the application instructions.

This opportunity includes Purpose Areas #2 and #3 of the Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS). Applicants may choose from 9 purpose areas and submit a single proposal.


Federally-recognized tribes, Alaska native villages, organization(s) acting as the authorized designee of a federally-recognized tribe, and consortia of 2 or more tribes may apply.
