Federal Register, April 12, 2002:

Funds for this program are intended to expand and/or enhance drug and alcohol treatment services (referred to as substance abuse treatment services) in support of Treatment Drug Courts that have begun operating no later than September 30, 2002. It is estimated there will be about 17 awards for Family Treatment Drug Courts; and 8 awards for Juvenile or Adult Treatment Drug Courts.

Approximately $10 million will be available; each award is expected to range from $300,000 to $400,000 per year in total costs. Grants will be awarded for a project period of up to three years.

Family treatment drug courts are civil courts designed to reunify families, improve child safety, reduce the cost and trauma to children of long-term foster care, and meet the requirements of the 1997 Adoption and Safe Families Act to speed up decisions on child placement by providing substance abuse treatment and other services to parents. Juvenile and adult treatment drug courts are criminal courts that send offenders to alcohol and drug treatment to eliminate or reduce time in jail.

WHO CAN APPLY: State and local governments, Indian tribes and tribal organizations, courts, community-based organizations and faith-based organizations are eligible.
