Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $25,108)

The Department of Justice developed a comprehensive and coordinated approach for tribal governments to apply for funding to reduce and prevent crime and victimization. Through this process, the Department's existing tribal government-specific programs are included in, and available through a single Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS). Through this solicitation, only one application was accepted from each federal recognized tribe to encourage comprehensive assessments of need and planning. Each tribe could apply for funding under up to nine purpose areas, which included funding from the Office of Community Oriented Policing (COPS), Office of Justice Programs (including the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office for Victims of Crime and Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention), and Office on Violence Against Women. The tribe had the flexibility to select the purpose areas whose funding addressed the needs of the tribe as outlined in its tribal and community profile. There were nine purpose areas total, and Purpose Area 4 was dedicated to Correctional Systems and Correctional Alternatives on Tribal Lands Program.

Funding through the Correctional Systems and Correctional Alternatives on Tribal Lands Program will support efforts related to planning, constructing and renovating tribal justice facilities associated with the incarceration and rehabilitation of juvenile and adult offenders subject to tribal jurisdiction as well as the enhancement of tribal justice system infrastructure.

The grantee will use funds to initiate and complete Phase One of the Justice & Public Safety Complex. Site selection of the new complex is completed and Phase One will consist of an Environmental Assessment of up to 5 acres; topographic mapping up to 5 acres; geotechnical analysis of the construction site; programmatic/pre-design assessment to determine size of facility up to 35,000 square feet; landscape/irrigation assessment and design; and schematic design up to 35,000 square feet. A Justice and Public Safety Complex Development Committee will be established to work with appropriate Tribal Personnel to ensure the continued progress of the facility development.
