- Justice Systems and Alcohol and Substance Abuse (BJA)
- Corrections and Correctional Alternatives (BJA)
- Violence Against Women Tribal Governments Program (OVW)
- Children’s Justice Act Partnerships for Indian Communities(OVC)
- Comprehensive Tribal Victim Assistance Program (OVC)

Each purpose area has specific goals and objectives. Potential applicants should carefully review each purpose area and its goals and objectives prior to applying.
History of Funding
Previous award recipients can be viewed on the DOJ website.
Generally, DOJ funds must be used to supplement existing funds for program activities and may not replace (supplant) non-federal funds that have been appropriated for the same purpose. Grant funds must be used to increase the amount of state, local, tribal, or Bureau of Indian Affairs funds that otherwise would be budgeted for these purposes in the absence of DOJ grant funding.
Eligible applicants are federally recognized Indian Tribal Governments, which include:
- Alaska Native villages
- Tribal consortia consisting of two or more federally recognized Indian tribes
Applications must be submitted February 23, 2016 by 9:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST).
Award amounts vary by purpose area. Depending on purpose area, projects may last either 2 to 4 years. Cost sharing/matching is not required. However, if a successful application proposes a voluntary match amount, and the DOJ approves the budget, the total match amount incorporated into the approved budget becomes mandatory and subject to audit. For specific award details for each purpose area, please refer to the official program guidance listed at the URL link in the contact section of this posting.
