Introduction to the Questionnaire (Ver. 3.9.12)

Congratulations on your CTAS Area 4 grant award! The National Indian Justice Center (NIJC) and EKM&P Associates will serve as your training and technical assistance (T/TA) providers during your project period. To initiate our working relationship, we ask that you complete this questionnaire. Your responses will help us to coordinate T/TA activities, obtain information as well as to develop information that will assist you in reaching your project goals and objectives.

You are welcome to contact us at any time with T/TA requests. Send requests via e-mail to or call Kelly at (707) 579-5507. You may also make your T/TA requests online at:

* 1. What is your contact information?

* 2. Please provide contact information for the Tribal Council or Governing Body.

* 3. We may be developing a publication that provides case studies of the development of projects under the CTAS Area 4 Grant Program. A case study would provide other tribes with information on how projects develop, change or are modified throughout the project period. This publication will provide information on successes, challenges and lessons learned by the CTAS Area 4 grantees as well as the T/TA providers.
