This report examines key findings of the American and Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Correctional Systems and Correctional Alternatives on Tribal Lands (CSCATL).
Abstract
The following program performance results show that on average, 55 collaborative partnerships have been reportedly developed each quarter. Almost 40 percent are in probation and parole services (19 percent) and in law enforcement (19 percent). Most grantees (77 percent) are completing middle-stage construction milestones. Almost half (6 of 13, or 46 percent) of the grantees are nearing completion of their late-stage construction milestones. Two (of 13) grantees have new buildings substantially complete. The key objectives of the ARRA CSCATL program are to build and renovate needed tribal justice system facilities and to create and retain jobs while promoting transparency in how federally awarded funds are spent. The program provides funding to help 20 tribes in cost-effective construction and renovation of correctional facilities associated with the incarceration and rehabilitation of juvenile and adult offenders subject to tribal jurisdiction and to explore community-based alternatives to help prevent and control jail overcrowding due to alcohol and other substance abuse convictions.
