Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $185,000)

The Congressionally Recommended Awards Program, authorized by the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117), helps improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, prevent or combat juvenile delinquency, and/or assist victims of crime (other than compensation). Funds should be used for the projects recommended by Congress, in the amounts specified in the joint explanatory statement incorporated by reference into Pub. L. 111-117, and generally consistent with one or more of the following statutory purposes: improving the functioning of the criminal justice system, preventing or combating juvenile delinquency, or assisting victims of crime (other than compensation). Each of these purposes is framed using language drawn, respectively, from the former Byrne discretionary statute, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, the Victims of Crime Act, and the Violence Against Women Act. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 2010 Congressional Budget and by the joint explanatory statement that is incorporated by reference into the FY2010 Department of Justice Appropriations Act.

The Gallatin County Treatment Court Program (Program) will provide a structured, safe and sober living facility for female participants and expand its current program and services in the areas of gender-specific therapy, addictions counseling and case management. With this award, the Program will address three primary programmatic needs that are currently not funded: 1) providing a structured, safe and sober living facility for women participating in the program to reduce termination rates of female participants by contracting for residential bed days; 2) increasing its ability to provide treatment, both in the area of addictions treatment and more gender (women) specific therapy for the issues faced by female participants, to reduce the termination rate of the female participants by funding additional hours of contracted professional services; and 3) increasing the ability to provide case management to participants to reduce termination rates by funding additional staffing hours.
