Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $200,000)
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.
Sacramento County will use Drug Court enhancement funds to provide additional services to drug court clients to increase the likelihood of successful rehabilitation. Federal funding for this project will also support the enhancement of an existing automated management information system, an outcome evaluation, and a dashboard that can be used to identify problems and institute corrective behavior for the clients.
