The Hopland Band of Pomo Indians, Yurok Tribe, Hoopa Valley Tribe, Round Valley Indian Tribes, and the Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians received the grants under the Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) grant program, which helps tribes enhance law enforcement, bolster justice systems, prevent youth substance abuse, address violence against women, serve crime victims, and support other efforts to combat crime.

“I am proud to represent all of these North Coast tribes and to work closely with them on their law enforcement and safety needs. This federal assistance will go far in helping tribes throughout my district hire police officers, assist victims, and keep tribal lands safe,” Huffman said.




  • Didn’t they just announce yesterday that they took Hoopa’s law enforcement rights away & Humboldt sheriff would step up? Now they’re getting 1.2m for law enforcement… Does that mean they’re getting their rights back?

    Where is all this money coming from & why can’t we afford for a sheriff officer to be on duty after 8 in SoHum but there’s all this money floating around.

  • Like they need the money. Can you say casinos, or perhaps are there just a few making bank off the backs of other natives.
