Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $190,204)

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 San Francisco Superor Drug Court will use enhancement funds to provide transitional housing coupled with intensive outpatient services including additional case management and social services for their drug court clients. These efforts will increase the potential for client success, and ultimately reduce recidivism due to immediate engagement in treatment.
