This award is made under the FY 2007 Tribal Courts Assistance Program and it supports the development, implementation, enhancement, and continuing operation of tribal justice systems.

The Yavapai-Apache Nation will use FY 07 funds to continue funding the operation of their tribal court, including criminal cases, traffic cases, civil cases, and alcohol and substance abuse cases. Funds will also be used for training, enhancement of the case management system, hiring of new court personnel, case tracking software, and home arrest equipment.
