Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $128,193)

The purpose of the Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program (42 U.S.C. 3797u et seq.) is to provide financial and technical assistance to states, state courts, local courts, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments to develop and implement drug treatment courts that effectively integrate substance abuse treatment, mandatory drug testing, sanctions and incentives, and transitional services in a judicially supervised court setting with jurisdiction over nonviolent, substance-abusing offenders. The FY 2010 Adult Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program will provide grant funds to jurisdictions to implement or enhance a local drug court or to improve, enhance, expand, or financial support drug court services statewide.

The New York State Unified Court System will use the grant funds to enhance the Tonawanda City Drug Court. The drug court will add no-cost counseling and transportation services, drug court team training, and a program evaluation. The drug court will collaborate with community based organizations to provide the counseling services. CA/NCF
