Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $226,238)

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 Sac and Fox Nation (SFN) will be utilizing grant funds for renovation of the Detention Center, which is an essential component of the SFN justice program. The facility has been in continuous use since its inception and the years have taken a toll on the facility. The 10-year old facility is in need of repairs and upgrades that will assist in the provision of juvenile justice services. The SFN, in the initial planning of this project in 1990, developed and designed this facility for long-term operation to provide housing for juvenile offenders. While the Nation maintains a comprehensive maintenance and operations schedule for upkeep of the facility the passage of time and use of the facility has resulted in the need for upgrades in several areas that go beyond simple repair and replacement. For this application, the SFN has determined the following three priority areas should be renovated for continued service provision: security/surveillance equipment upgrade; floor treatment for residential living areas; and kitchen equipment replacement.
