Annotation: This Fact Sheet presents overviews of the various tribal assistance programs administered by the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ’s) Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA).
Abstract: The Coordinated Trial Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) was launched by DOJ in FY 2010 in response to tribal leaders’ concerns about DOJ’s grant process, specifically its lack of flexibility in addressing tribal criminal justice and public safety needs. Under CTAS, federally recognized tribes and tribal consorts could, for the first time, submit a single application for most of DOJ’s tribal grant programs. Another tribal assistance program administered by BJA is the Indian Alcohol and Substance Abuse Program (IASAP). IASAP supports tribal grantees in planning and implementing system-wide strategies that address crime issues related to alcohol and substance abuse. IASAP training and technical assistance programs are described. A third BJA-administered tribal program is the Tribal Courts Assistance Program (TCAP), which was first announced in FY 1999. TCAP was created to assist federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribes with the development, implementation, and enhancement of tribal judicial systems that are culturally appropriate. TCAP training and technical assistance are described. This report concludes with a listing of IASAP and TCAP grantees for FY 2013 and FY 2014.
