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 Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians (GTB) will use this grant to enhance the rural tribal community's drug court, the Odeswaning Inama Mikana Grand Traverse Band of Healing to Wellness. The drug court assists adult non-violent offenders with successful rehabilitation from drug and/or alcohol abuse. The GTB covers six county service areas which are considered rural. The enhancements will include, but are not limited to, providing training for drug court team members, implementing a drug court data collection system, and providing new materials and additional incentives for drug court participants.
