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 Kalispell Municipal Treatment Court (KMTC) will use Drug Court Discretionary Grant funds to fully implement their drug court program. The KMTC focuses on misdemeanor offenders with serious substance abuse/addiction problems. Through intensive monitoring, education, and outpatient treatment, it is their objective to reduce the drug and alcohol usage of their participating offenders and their corresponding criminal conduct. The KMTC program will strictly adhere to the Ten Key Components model. CA/NCF
