Chippewa Cree Tribe responds to audit on use of $12.3M grant





The Chippewa Cree Tribe of Montana said it is implementing new procedures in response to a Department of Justice audit.

The tribe received $12.3 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds to build a new detention facility. A July 2012 audit found fault with the way the grant was handled although it appears only $219 was in question.

The tribe has spent about $7.9 million of the grant so far.
