The planned purpose/objectives are: 1) to develop and implement substance abuse treatment programs in correctional and detention facilities at the local, state, and tribal levels, implementing MAT and other effective treatment strategies; 2) to prepare RSAT participants for successful community reintegration, and 3) to partner with community-based treatment, recovery and other broad-based aftercare services, preparing RSAT participants for successful community reintegration.
Primary activities/deliverables once federal RSAT funds are awarded to MBCC are: 1) to release a statewide RSAT funding opportunity. 2) review applications, convene a MBCC Application Review Committee to develop funding recommendations to go to MBCC Board of Directors for final awards; 3) Create subawards based upon final awards from MBCC; 4) subrecipients provide narrative, fiscal and performance reporting as required through MBCC reporting formats; and MBCC provides required federal reporting through JustGrants and PMT reporting systems; 4) MBCC monitor subrecipient projects activity to ensure program compliance; and 5) MBCC submit a federal RSAT closeout package upon execution of the grant and full funds expenditure.
Expected outcomes include implementing successful and effective jail based substance abuse treatment programs and strategies, implementing effective offender aftercare services, effectively preparing and assisting offenders for successful community reintegration, thereby reducing offender recidivism rates.
