Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $500,000)

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 Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians will expend these grant funds to renovate their public safety building. The renovated building will better meet the needs of the tribe by creating a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary and improved public safety facility to house the Tribal Police, Tribal Courts, Child Support Department, and the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, Probation, and Parole.
