Grants to USA and territories state, county, township, city, and tribal governments to improve services addressing substance misuse by individuals involved in the criminal justice system. Applicants must complete the required registrations prior to applying. Funding is intended to plan, enhance, and implement drug court services, including service coordination, management of drug court participants, and recovery support services.
OJP is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights and racial equity, increases access to justice, supports crime victims and individuals impacted by the justice system, strengthens community safety and protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community. The Adult Drug Court (ADC) 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 plan, implement, and enhance the operations of adult drug courts. Adult drug courts effectively integrate evidence-based substance use disorder treatment, mandatory drug testing, incentives and sanctions, and transitional services in judicially supervised criminal court settings that have jurisdiction over persons with substance use disorder treatment needs in order to reduce recidivism and increase their access to treatment and recovery support, and to prevent overdoses.
The focus of the ADC Discretionary Grant Program is to reduce the misuse of opioids, stimulants, and other substances, including alcohol, by people involved in the criminal justice system. Recognizing the significant increase and public health impact of overdose deaths, BJA also encourages a focus on preventing overdose and overdose deaths. In the proposal narrative, all applicants are required to describe a plan to serve individuals with substance use disorders. To accomplish this goal, BJA recognizes that sites may need assistance to evaluate their needs, identify the target population, ensure equity and inclusion in programming, track program implementation, and to map critical resources in the community. To that end, BJA encourages exploration of partnerships with research experts to facilitate these evaluation and assessment activities.
