Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $200,000)

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 Missouri Office of State Courts Administrator will use the grant funds to enhance the operational effectiveness of Missouri's treatment courts. It seeks to implement an evidence-based offender assessment system into the Justice Information System, Missouri's court case management system. The goal of this project is to enhance the existing statewide treatment court system in Missouri to provide evidence-based, client specific treatment and supervision services to non-violent substance abusing/addicted offenders in order to decrease the number of these types of offenders that are being sent to prison.
