OJJDP FY 2016 Family Drug Court Implementation and Enhancement Program

ojjdp-logo-smallOJJDP FY 2016 Family Drug Court Implementation and Enhancement Program – The Family Drug Courts program builds the capacity of states, state and local courts, units of local government, and federally recognized tribal governments to either implement new drug courts or enhance pre-existing drug courts for individuals with substance abuse disorders or substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders, including histories of trauma, who are involved with the family dependency court as a result of child abuse, neglect, and other parenting issues. Applicants must provide services to the parents in the program and their children. This program provides seed money, not long-term support. OJJDP expects successful applicants to develop and implement a sustainability plan during the grant period to continue operation of the family drug court when the grant ends. This solicitation is composed of two grant categories. Applicants must clearly designate under which category they are applying. Category 1: Implementation. Implementation grants are available to jurisdictions that are ready to implement a family drug court. These are for jurisdictions where either no family drug court currently exists or a family drug court has been operational for less than 1 year. Jurisdictions may already have other types of drug or treatment courts (such as adult drug or mental health courts). Category 2: Enhancement. Enhancement grants are available to jurisdictions with a fully operational (for at least 1 year) family drug court that wish to enhance the operation of the court. Eligible applicants under both categories are limited to states (including territories), state and local courts, units of local government, and federally recognized tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior). Current Closing Date for Applications: May 31, 2016.
