FY 2020 CTAS Pre-Application Webinar: Budget Development Overview

Event Dates
The Department of Justice is sponsoring webinars on the Fiscal Year 2020 Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) to educate participants about application requirements for specific CTAS purpose areas. The webinars will also provide guidance on meeting grant budgetary requirements and preparing strategies to access grant funds to strengthen the capacity of tribal justice systems.

As part of the CTAS process, applicants are required to develop a budget that should provide the detailed computation for each budget line item, listing the total cost of each and showing how it was calculated by the applicant. High quality budgets result in better application scores and expedited processing, if awarded. The key goals of this webinar are to:
  • Provide an overview of the CTAS budget detail worksheet;
  • Discuss the “dos and don’ts” for budget development;
  • Provide guidance on elements that should be included in high quality budgets; and
  • Identify tools and resources to assist applicants with addressing budget-related questions.
