BJA Tribal Consultation


The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) will conduct a Government-to-Government Tribal Consultation, in person on November 18, 2024, at the Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder, Santa Fe, New Mexico. The BJA Consultation will take place the day immediately prior to the Office on Violence Against Women’s 19th annual Violence Against Women Act Consultation.

The purpose of each consultation is to solicit recommendations from tribal government leaders on the following topics:

  • BJA’s tribal assistance funding.
  • Ways that BJA can make its funding more accessible to federally recognized tribes.
  • Adding a new Purpose Area to the Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) to support the development, implementation, and enhancement of treatment courts.
  • Interest in BJA allowing tribes to designate nonprofit organizations to apply for BJA’s CTAS Purpose Areas on behalf of tribes.
