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 in compliance with Bureau of Indian Affairs' standards regarding correctional operations, programs, and design.

The Navajo Nation Department of Corrections will utilize this award to renovate the Tuba City Adult Detention facility, which currently serves as the regional corrections facility for the Navajo Nation. The department proposes to use the 'Project Logic Model' in developing this renovation plan. The basic elements of change include: assessment, capacity, planning, implementation, and evaluation. Also included will be the sustainability of the project and a cultural component in developing plans for this facility.

The goal of this plan is to bring the detention facility to standards by addressing three major areas of deficiencies: upgrade and expansion of the camera security systems, renovation of the triple wide modular for the administration of law enforcement/detention services, and extension of the electronic fence and security lights around the exterior of the facility.
