to read the meeting notes.
As a reminder the Department of Justice has released the FY 23 Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation funding opportunity. CTAS funding supports crime prevention activities, victim services, and coordinated community responses to violence against Native American individuals. BJA highlighted this funding opportunity during our initial meetings. This funding opportunity has seven purpose areas. Please consider applying for CTAS Purpose Area 3 (Tribal Justice Systems Program) to address jail programming needs (e.g., mental health and substance use treatment and recovery needs), CTAS Purpose Area 4 (Tribal Justice System infrastructure Programs) to address jail physical infrastructure needs (e.g., renovation and/or expansion), and/or CTAS Purpose Area 9 (Tribal Youth Program) to establish or enhance services for youth in detention. Please go to Open Solicitations (justice.gov) to review the funding opportunity information.
