Grant to a qualified USA nonprofit, business, or IHE for training and technical assistance to improve the capacity of juvenile drug courts to assist substance abusing youth. Applicants are encouraged to register to apply several weeks before the deadline. The awardee will develop and expand training that will help juvenile drug court programs address the behavioral health of youth and their families who are participating in the program.
Specifically, OJJDP is seeking a provider to deliver training and technical assistance to juvenile drug courts in evidence-based practices, best treatment practices and behavioral health approaches for adolescents and court operations, based on the Sixteen Strategies of Effective Juvenile Drug Courts (attached below).
This program will build, develop, and expand juvenile drug court training and technical assistance for mental health and substance abuse treatment practitioners and juvenile drug court teams nationally. Since the treatment component of the juvenile drug court is critical for successful outcomes, the need for significant training and development exists. Through this program, OJJDP aims to improve the delivery of treatment services of juvenile drug courts nationally, enhance the juvenile drug court model (based on the Juvenile Drug Courts: Strategies in Practice), promote promising and best treatment practices and behavioral approaches, facilitate coordination and leveraging of resources, and enhance research efforts. Juvenile drug courts are funded through a separate OJJDP grant solicitation to serve only nonviolent offenders.
The successful applicant should be knowledgeable of behavioral health approaches and be able to provide guidance for juvenile drug court treatment communities and court staff. The applicant should have substantial experience in identifying and providing juvenile drug court training in best program practices; assessing substance abuse/mental health capacities of established juvenile drug court programs; developing and conducting substance abuse/mental health training for juvenile drug court teams; effectively communicating and collaborating with drug courts; conducting pre/post training evaluations; and collaborating with other agencies to enhance juvenile drug court treatment outcomes.
