U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says several tribes and tribal organizations in South Dakota have received grants from the Department of Justice.
The grant money will be used to enhance law enforcement operations, assist with violence against women issues and provide funding for tribal youth programs.
Tribes and tribal programs in South Dakota are getting more than $4.3 million in grant money. The recipients are the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe and the Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety.
Also, Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate of the Lake Reservation, the Wiconi Wawokiya Inc., and the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe were named as recipients.
