Join us online for this informative workshop to gather the tools and resources you need to submit a proposal for the Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS). During the workshop, we will walk you through the proposal/application process and review all required forms, allowable costs, key components of a grant proposal, program sustainability, and more.
The Department of Justice launched CTAS in direct response to concerns raised by tribal leaders that DOJ’s grant process did not provide the flexibility tribes need to address their criminal justice and public safety needs. The Department awards grants to improve public safety, serve victims of crime, combat violence against women and support youth programs in American Indian and Alaska Native communities. This workshop is designed to provide previous and new CTAS applicants with tools and guidance that may assist with the tribe’s efforts to access grant funding and other resources to improve their justice systems. Online workshop sessions will be led by DOJ personnel and experienced technical assistance providers and will focus on topics such as: * Strategic planning to support a strong program design * Writing a proposal * Grant writing tips * DOJ funding opportunities and training and technical assistance resources. **Training Times| December 1 & December 2** 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm Eastern Time | 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm Central Time | 11:00 am - 3:00 pm Mountain Time | 10:00 am - 2:00 pm Pacific Time | 9:00 am - 1:00 pm Alaska Time **December 1 Topics** * Welcome and Introductions & Technology Overview * History of CTAS and Critical Overview of the Solicitation * Action Planning: Develop an Application Action Plan * Action Planning: Tribal Community and Justice Profile * Question & Answer and Day 1 Wrap Up **December 2 Topics** * Action Planning: Purpose Area Narrative Program Design * Formatting a Grant Narrative * Creating a Budget * Evaluation for Program Sustainability * Common Mistakes to Avoid When Writing Your Grant Application * Question and Answer, Closing Comments
