At the National Museum of the American Indian Mr. Perrelli announced the first grants under the Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS), a new effort combining 10 different Department of Justice grant programs into a single solicitation. ÃÂToday, we take another major step toward true nation-to-nation collaboration,ÃÂ said Perrelli. ÃÂCTAS is not only a more streamlined grant-making process, it is part of the departmentÃÂs broader strategy of increased engagement with tribal communities across a broad range of areas.ÃÂ
