Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $100,000)
The OJJDP FY 10 Earmarks Program furthers the Department's mission by providing grants, cooperative agreements, and other assistance authorized by the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974, as amended, to organizations identified in the Conference Report to accompany the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (P.L. 111-117), H.R. Conf. Rep. No. 111-366 at 702-714.
This project will serve the juvenile membership (under 18 years of age) of the Chippewa Cree Tribe of the Rocky Boy's Indian Reservation located in north-central Montana. In support of this initiative, the Chippewa Cree Tribe has identified one major project goal: to ensure that the design of the juvenile portion of the planned new Chippewa Cree Tribal Justice Center complies with the sight and sound separation criteria of 49 CFR Parts 2054 through 2055 required by OJJDP for the construction of dual population detention facilities. To guarantee that the Chippewa Cree Tribe has successfully achieved the above goal, the project will adhere to the following major program objective: during the project period, the Chippewa Cree Tribe will offset the costs for Architectural and Engineering Design services on the juvenile portion of the planned dual population Chippewa Cree Tribal Justice Center using funds from this opportunity as measured by a final design that meet the sound and separation criteria of 49 CFR Parts 2054 through 2055. With funding to supplement the architectural and engineering costs of the juvenile detention portion of the building, the tribe will not need to cut costs on other critical portions of the project to stay within the approved budget. These funds will ensure that tribal members have access to a safe, secure, and much needed juvenile correctional facility that will meet the needs of the tribe's growing population for decades to come.
