Tribal Justice Systems Infrastructure Program (TJSIP)


The Tribal Justice Systems Infrastructure Program (TJSIP) provides federally recognized tribes and tribal consortia with funding to strengthen tribal justice system capacity by addressing physical infrastructure needs.

Through the Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) Purpose Area 4, the Bureau of Justice Assistance provides site-based funding to federally recognized tribes to renovate or expand existing tribal justice-related facilities or build prefabricated or permanent modular tribal justice-related facilities. The facility types supported by this program include police departments, courts, detention centers, multipurpose justice centers, transitional living facilities, correctional alternative or treatment facilities, and domestic violence shelters/safe homes/transitional living facilities/advocacy programs.


TJSIP is authorized by Section 20109, Subtitle A of Title II of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, as amended, 42 U.S.C. Section 13701 et seq.
