Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $350,000)

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 Montana Supreme Court will use the grant funds to implement a drug court in the 13th Judicial District. The drug court will assist non-violent offenders based on the nationally recognized 10 key drug court components and will use evidence-based practices both for court services and treatment services.
