Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $187,877)

The Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program is designed to assist states, state courts, local courts, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments in developing and establishing drug courts for substance-abusing adult and juvenile offenders. Drug court programs funded by the Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program are required by law to target nonviolent offenders. The program supports the following activities: adult drug court implementation, single jurisdiction drug court enhancement, statewide drug court enhancement, and planning efforts.

The Missouri 25th Circuit Drug Court will use the FY 2009 Drug Court Enhancement grant to fund outpatient treatment services. Funding will support participant education, client tracking, and wrap-around services. In addition, funding will allow drug court team members to attend training and conferences. The grant funds will assist in restoring services that have been severely diminished or eliminated due to local economic hardships.
