Grants to USA and Territories tribal governments, state and local agencies, and courts for programs related to the criminal justice system. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for programs to enhance drug court services, to include coordination, management of drug court participants, and recovery support services. This program furthers the Department’s mission by providing resources to state, local, and federally recognized tribal governments to enhance drug court programs and systems for nonviolent offenders and veterans with addictions, including opioid abuse and overdose.
For the purposes of this solicitation, an adult “drug court” is defined as a court program managed by a multidisciplinary team that responds to the offenses and treatment needs of participants who are diagnosed with a substance use disorder. This definition explicitly excludes drug offenders who have committed acts of violence.
Note: The applicant must demonstrate that eligible drug court participants promptly enter the drug court program following a determination of their eligibility. BJA will not make awards to an applicant whose drug courts require an initial period of incarceration unless the period of incarceration is mandated by statute for the offense in question. In such instances, the applicant must demonstrate that the person receives treatment services, if available, while incarcerated and begins drug court treatment services immediately upon release.
Eligible drug court types are: adult drug courts; driving while intoxicated (DWI)/driving under the influence (DUI) courts; co-occurring courts (participants possess both a substance abuse and mental illness diagnosis); veterans treatment courts (VTCs) (Types A and B); and tribal healing to wellness courts (THWCs). Court programs that combine or propose to combine drug court types with other court programs or dockets are also eligible for funding, although the funding under this program must be used to address only those clients eligible for drug court services. Applicants should refer to their relevant local statutes for definitions of the legal age of an “adult.”
