Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $100,000)

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 Island County Superior Court will use the grant funds to enhance the Island County Drug Court. The intent of this drug court is to reduce substance abuse among non-violent drug offenders within Island County. Grant funds will be used to train staff, conduct more frequent client drug testing, and develop a management information system to conduct an evaluation on the effectiveness of the program. CA/NCF
