Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $104,553)

The Renovation of Correctional Facilities on Tribal Lands Discretionary Grant Program assists tribes in developing strategies to cost effectively construct or renovate existing facilities associated with the incarceration and rehabilitation of juvenile and adult offenders subject to tribal jurisdiction. Careful planning is critical to ensure that new and renovated correctional facilities are appropriately designed for the intended population, supportive of cultural and traditional values, safe and secure when completed, and are in compliance with Bureau of Indian Affairs' standards regarding correctional operations, programs, and design.

The Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians are planning to expend their renovation grant funds for two purposes: to build a protective wall around the emergency electricity generator to prevent it from freezing during bad weather and to repair the roof and ceiling of the existing prison facility, which was damaged by severe ice formation over the past few years.
