Grant to a USA nonprofit organization, for-profit entity, institution of higher education, or faith-based organization for drug treatment services for incarcerated individuals. Applicants must complete the required registrations prior to applying. Funding is intended to improve substance use disorder treatment programming and post-release outcomes for individuals who are incarcerated.

The RSAT for State Prisoners Program assists with developing and implementing residential substance use disorder treatment programs within correctional and detention facilities. These programs identify and provide appropriate treatment to individuals with substance use disorders or co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders or challenges. Also, they create and maintain community-based continuing care and reentry services. 

Residential programs engage individuals who are incarcerated for a period of between 6 and 12 months, and jail-based programs engage individuals who are incarcerated for at least 3 months. RSAT residential programs are required to conduct drug and alcohol testing, establish programming set apart from the general correctional population, and coordinate with state alcohol and drug abuse agencies, or an appropriate local alcohol and drug use disorder agency, and other human service and rehabilitation programs. The RSAT Program also encourages the implementation of science-based substance use disorder treatment programming in local correctional facilities, as well as the inclusion of medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, as part of any substance use disorder treatment program. 

The goal of the RSAT for State Prisoners TTA Program is to assist BJA grant recipients in the provision of residential treatment services that treat substance use disorders along with co-occurring mental health conditions in inmates/detainees to prepare them for reintegration into their communities. These treatment programs are expected to provide service in accordance with the evidence of what works in correctional treatment.

The selected TTA provider must be able to administer comprehensive and high-quality TTA to grantees overseeing prisons and jails and align its policies and practices with the Promising Practices Guidelines for Residential Substance Abuse (PPG for RSAT). All TTA must be grounded in data, research, and best practices. Additionally, the TTA should enhance the capacities of the recipients to address similar issues on their own after the grant expires.
