Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $499,112)

The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) FY20 Adult Drug Court (ADC) and Veterans Treatment Court (VTC) Discretionary Grant Program provides financial and technical assistance to states, state courts, local courts, units of local government, and federally recognized Indian tribal governments to implement and enhance the operations of adult drug courts and veterans treatment courts. BJA’s ADC/VTC Program supports efforts by state, local, and tribal courts to address the needs of individuals in the criminal justice system with substance abuse issues. The focus is to reduce opioid, stimulant, and substance abuse. BJA allows award recipients to implement or enhance the most appropriate drug court model to accommodate the needs and available resources of their jurisdictions, so long as the model conforms to the 10 key components and the evidence-based program principles in the nationally-recognized drug court standards.

The grant recipient has an operational adult drug court or is ready to fully implement a drug court. Funding will be used to launch a drug court; scale up the drug court program’s capacity; provide access to or enhance treatment capacity or other critical support services; enhance court operations; expand or enhance court services; or improve the quality and/or intensity of services based on needs assessments.
