JUSTICE DEPARTMENT ANNOUNCES AVAILABILITY OF FUNDING TO FEDERALLY-RECOGNIZED TRIBES AND TRIBAL CONSORTIA

Funding to Support Public Safety Projects in Indian Country Available

WASHINGTON – The Department of Justice today announced the opening of their comprehensive grant solicitation period for funding to support public safety, victim services and crime prevention improvements for American Indian and Alaska Native tribal governments. The department’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) will be posted at 9:00 p.m. EST today at http://www.justice.gov/tribal/open-sol.html.

“Through the Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation we have made it easier for tribes to tap much-needed federal funding for critical needs, such as violence against women,” said Acting Associate Attorney General Tony West. “We have made excellent progress in restoring a healthy government-to-government relationship with tribal nations, but we are far from finished with our work.”

SparrowHawk Consulting has helped 2 Tribes prepare 3 successful CTAS applications that produced over $6.6 million for their justice and safety programs. Contact me at don@sparrowhawkco.com or 800-398-9048 to explore how we might help your Tribe!
