Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $400,000)

The Congressionally Recommended Awards Program, authorized by the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117), helps improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, prevent or combat juvenile delinquency, and/or assist victims of crime (other than compensation). Funds should be used for the projects recommended by Congress, in the amounts specified in the joint explanatory statement incorporated by reference into Pub. L. 111-117, and generally consistent with one or more of the following statutory purposes: improving the functioning of the criminal justice system, preventing or combating juvenile delinquency, or assisting victims of crime (other than compensation). Each of these purposes is framed using language drawn, respectively, from the former Byrne discretionary statute, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, the Victims of Crime Act, and the Violence Against Women Act. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 2010 Congressional Budget and by the joint explanatory statement that is incorporated by reference into the FY2010 Department of Justice Appropriations Act.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe (SRST) will use this award to strengthen the Tribe's criminal justice system, namely the Tribal Children's Court, for a more streamlined, coordinated effort in preventing, combating and/or reducing juvenile delinquency on the Standing Rock Reservation. This project will provide safer and more stable communities within the Reservation. To accomplish this, the SRST will implement the "Juvenile Intensive Supervision Probation Program" and will hire a Juvenile Court Advocate and a Juvenile Intensive Probation Officer to assist juveniles that come into the criminal justice system.
