Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $290,906)

The proposed project/goal of the Montana Board of Crime Control’s RSAT project is: To provide treatment options to the cycle of addiction that is an inherent cause of violence, crime, homelessness and deaths by reducing the misuse/use of legal and illegal drugs by providing evidence based treatment and aftercare for SUD affected individual involved in the criminal justice systems.   

The planned purpose/objectives are 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; prepare RSAT participants for successful community reintegration; and 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 to release a statewide RSAT funding opportunity. Review applications and then convene a MBCC Application Review Committee to develop funding recommendations to go to MBCC Board of Directors for final awards. Award grant funds to approved sub awardees who have agreed to adhere to all grant/MBCC/Federal requirements. Subrecipients will complete MBCC and Federal PMT fiscal and performance reporting as required through both the MBCC and Federal reporting formats. MBCC will then complete the Federal PMT report and submit them through JustGrants. MBCC will monitor subrecipient project and fiscal activity to ensure program and CFR 200 compliance. 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. Success in these things will reduce violence, crime, homelessness and deaths.     

The RSAT funding is open to the entire state of Montana. Eligible applicants and intended beneficiaries/subrecipients are projected to include state agencies as well as city, county and tribal governments.
