Grants to USA and territories government agencies and tribal governments for initiatives to improve local legal systems. Funding is intended to create alternatives to incarceration for minor offenses. Priority will be given to programs that support underserved communities and residents of high-poverty counties. Applicants are encouraged to provide recovery support services, which include transitional or recovery housing and peer recovery support service, to active participants in their drug court programs.
The Community Courts Initiative supports efforts by state, local, and federally recognized American Indian tribal governments to establish and enhance community courts in their jurisdictions. Community courts are neighborhood-focused court programs that combine the power of the community and the justice system to address local problems. They connect persons committing less serious crimes — often misdemeanor cases — to judicially supervised substance use disorder treatment, alternative sanctions, and other community-based services.
BJA will support projects to implement new community courts and enhance or expand existing community courts. Implementation projects will support jurisdictions that have completed a substantial amount of planning and are ready to establish a community court. This planning should include the community court stakeholders engaging residents to assess community-related crimes and issues, including potential kinds of cases, and create an action plan during the first 6 months to build a strong and focused strategy to scale up the community court program’s capacity; build or enhance court operations; create, expand, or enhance court services; and improve the quality and/or intensity of services for participants based on needs assessments.
Enhancement projects will support jurisdictions with an existing community court that has been fully operational for at least 1 year as of September 30, 2022. An applicant may propose to use funding to scale up the court program’s capacity, enhance court operations to serve a specific population such as veterans, expand or enhance court services, improve the quality and/or intensity of services based on needs assessments, gather data, or complete a program evaluation.
The Department of Justice 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.
