Grants are made annually, and each requires an in-kind match to promote tribal investment in programs that can survive independently when funding is no longer available.

Federally recognized Indian tribes and nonprofit tribal organizations, as defined in the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act, Public Law 93-638, 25 U.S.C., § 450(b), may apply for CJA grants.

Activities Funded Through CJA
Funding projects range from multidisciplinary team training and development of protocols for investigating and prosecuting child sexual abuse cases to provision of child advocacy services and development of child-centered interview rooms.
