Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $27,500)
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 Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana will use these grant funds to renovate two existing cells in the Coushatta Police Department building and add the necessary plumbing, stainless steel sink, stainless steel toilet, bunk beds and bedding to the cells.
