12 12 2014

The FY 2015 Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) is now open. Applications are due February 24, 2015.

On November 20, 2014, the Department of Justice announced the opening of the grant solicitation period for comprehensive funding to support public safety, victim services, and crime prevention improvements in American Indian and Alaska Native communities.  The Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) is administered by the Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS), and Office on Violence Against Women (OVW). The funding can be used to enhance law enforcement; bolster adult and juvenile justice systems; prevent and control juvenile delinquency; serve sexual assault, domestic violence, and elder victims; and support other efforts to combat crime.

SparrowHawk has assisted Tribes in securing over $6 million of CTAS funds.  For further information please contact


Help with Disconnected Youth Available to Tribes, States and Municipalities

8 12 2014

Pilot program involving 5 federal agencies.

Over five million 14-to-24-year-olds in the U.S. are out of school and not working. In many cases, they face the additional challenges of being low-income, homeless, in foster care, or involved in the justice system. Today, in response, five federal agencies are coming together to offer communities support in overcoming the obstacles they face in achieving better outcomes for “disconnected youth,” and those at risk of becoming disconnected.

For the next 100 days (application deadline: March 4. 2015), states, tribes, and municipalities can apply to become a Performance Partnership Pilot (P3). These pilot communities will test innovative, cost-effective, and outcome-focused strategies for improving results for disconnected youth.
