CTAS provides funding to federally recognized tribes, tribal consortia, and tribal designees to develop a comprehensive and coordinated approach to public safety and victimization. Applicants have the flexibility to submit a single application and select from any or all of the 10 purpose areas, including two administered by the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC)
- Purpose Area #6—Children’s Justice Act Partnerships for Indian Communities Program (CJA): CJA provides funding, technical assistance, and training to help American Indian and Alaska Native communities develop, establish, and operate programs designed to improve the investigation, prosecution, and handling of cases of criminal child abuse and neglect, and particularly child sexual abuse cases, in a manner which lessens trauma for child victims.
- Purpose Area #7—Tribal Victim Services Program (TVSP): TVSP provides funding to support a coordinated, collaborative, multidisciplinary, victim-centered response to crime that emphasizes adopting a trauma-informed approach to the delivery of crime victim services. Funding supports a range of activities including needs assessments, strategic planning, program development and implementation, program expansion, and other activities to address the victim service needs of tribes.
