Abstract: The federal resources for the Violence Against Women Tribal Governments Program are administered under the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ’s) Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS), which was established in Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 in response to concerns raised by Tribal leaders about the DOJ’s grant process, which did not provide the flexibility Tribes needed to address their criminal justice and public safety needs. Through CTAS, federally recognized Tribes and Tribal consortia can submit a single application for most of DOJ’s Tribal grant programs. CTAS is not a program, but rather is the overarching structure under which 10 separate grant program applications are collected. This Fact Sheet focuses on the features of CTAS Purpose Area 5. In addition to grant funding, the U.S. Justice Department’s Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) provides Tribal communities with a wide range of resources and supports to assist Tribal communities with the development, implementation, and improvement in policies and services designed to combat violence against women. OVW will accept applications for OVW resources from a federally recognized Indian Tribe, an authorized designee of a federally recognized Indian Tribe, or a Tribal consortium. Applicants are required to consult with a specific type of organization or group in implementing the funded project. This requirement can be met by partnering with a nonprofit Indian victim services program from the Tribal or local community; by partnering with a nonprofit Tribal domestic violence or sexual assault coalition, or by partnering with an advisory committee of women from the community who will be served by the project.
