Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $450,000)

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 Chippewa Cree Tribe Law Enforcement Department will utilize funding under the 2008 BJA Solicited Awards to support the renovation of a detention facility that is severely outdated and structurally inappropriate for detention purposes. The project will address the structural deficiencies, reconfigure the space, and retrofit the structure with proper safety equipment. This project will improve capacity to provide properly equipped and adequately planned space for detention needs.
