Federal stimulus money used to fund native american prison economy

I found this item in the New Mexico Independent quite intriguing as a sign of the economic times. The headline is "Feds release $82 million in stimulus for criminal justice for several pueblos, Navajo nation," and here is how the piece starts:

The U.S. Department of Justice announced Monday the award of $82.29 million in federal stimulus money for criminal justice initiatives in the Navajo Nation and several tribal jurisdictions throughout New Mexico.

The money will go toward everything from constructing and renovating prisons and jails and creating sexual offender registries to combating violence against women, according to a release from the U.S. Department.

Here is a link to the USDOJ press release.
