Category 5 National Drug Court Resource, Policy and Evidence-Based Practice Center-
The grantee, serving as a technical assistance provider, will use grant funds to operate the National Drug Court Resource, Policy and Evidence-based Practice Center (Resource Center). The Resource Center will equip all drug court practitioners with access to a myriad of drug court resources including recent evidence-based findings, training and technical assistance, publications, webinars, and a searchable online drug court library. The Resource Center will also aim to reduce the time from dissemination of evidence-based practices to adoption of those practices. The Resource Center will serve to continually update the field on the latest research on what works in all drug court types, and will produce publications and multi-media approaches to disseminate, and promote uptake of, evidence-based practices in the drug court field. The grantee will analyze, compile, and continually update information on national drug court activity and emerging issues and maintaining an extensive online curated reference collection of drug court materials. Resource Center staff will serve the drug court field by providing comprehensive, timely responses to all relevant requests for drug court information. CA/NCF
