Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $400,000)

The purpose of the Adult 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 evidence-based substance abuse treatment, mandatory drug testing, sanctions and incentives, and transitional services in a judicially supervised court setting with jurisdiction over substance-abusing offenders. Selected providers under this solicitation will support the Adult Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program (42 U.S.C. 3797u et seq.) grantees as well as the adult drug court field-at-large.

The Fund for the City of New York, serving as a technical assistance provider, will use grant funds to assist BJA statewide enhancement grantees and other states to: provide direct support and information to state agencies to enhance the leadership of the statewide drug court effort; improve coordination and collaboration among drug courts statewide; achieve statewide performance measurement; and standardize drug court operations. The TA provider will develop a program that will include a wide array of resources, information, strategies, and multi-media training and technical assistance activities that will be customized to meet the specific needs of individual jurisdictions.
