Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $89,263)

The Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Formula Grant Program (RSAT) assists states and local governments in developing and implementing substance abuse treatment programs in state and local correctional and detention facilities. The RSAT Program also assists states and local governments in creating and maintaining community-based aftercare services for offenders who are released from institutionally based substance abuse programs. Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Formula Grant funds may be used to implement three types of programs. At least 10 percent of the total state allocation for FY 2007 shall be made available to local correctional and detention facilities (provided such facilities exist) for either residential substance abuse treatment programs or jail-based substance abuse treatment programs as defined below.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety, Office of Justice Programs (MN OJP) will continue funding three fully implemented programs with their FY 2007 RSAT funds. MN OJP will subcontract with the Minnesota Department of Corrections to continue substance abuse initiatives at the Minnesota Correctional Facility at Red Wing, Minnesota Correctional Facility at Moose Lake, and Minnesota Correctional Facility at Shakopee. The RSAT program at Red Wing provides residential treatment programming for adolescents. The RSAT program at Moose Lake provides residential programming for adult men. The RSAT program at Shakopee provides residential programming for adult women. It is also MN OJP's intent to continue supporting a jail-based substance abuse treatment program focusing on Methamphetamine users, which is being administered by the Dodge-Filmore-Olmsted Community Corrections Department.
