Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $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 appropriate standards regarding correctional operations, programs, and design.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe will utilize the FY 09 Correctional Facilities on Tribal Lands - Category II Renovation grant to complete construction of its juvenile detention facility. This grant will provide additional funds to complete the construction of the Standing Rock Youth Services Center.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe needs to construct a juvenile detention facility to address the needs of juveniles on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. The current level of funding is substantially inadequate to complete construction of the facility. The additional commitment of the Tribe signifies how important this number one priority is for the Tribe. However, without additional funding the project will not be completed. The detention facility is specifically designed for the incarceration of juveniles ages 12-17. Grant funds will cover the following costs: personnel, travel costs for construction observation and meetings, office supplies, construction costs, and indirect expenses.
