Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $200,000)
The purposes of the Adult Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program (42 U.S.C. 3797u et seq.) are 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 nonviolent, substance-abusing offenders. The FY 2015 Adult Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program will provide grant funds to jurisdictions to implement or enhance a local drug court or to implement, enhance, or expand drug court services statewide.
The grant recipient will use the grant funds to: establish new services for target populations not currently being served; enhance existing court operations; expand court services and improve the quality and/or intensity of offender services such as healthcare including mental health services; educational, vocational, and job training; and job and housing placement assistance, childcare, and/or other family support services for each adult participant who requires such services.
