Grants to Montana government and tribal agencies to develop and implement substance abuse treatment programs in correctional facilities. Funding also supports the creation and maintenance of community-based aftercare services. Grants may be used for jail-based, residential, and aftercare programs that will prevent the cycle of alcohol use, drug use, and violence. Programs should have a strong emphasis on evidence-based practices.

RSAT’s objectives are to enhance the capabilities of states and units of local and tribal government to provide residential substance abuse treatment for incarcerated inmates; prepare inmates for their reintegration into a community by incorporating reentry planning activities into treatment programs; and assist these offenders and their communities through the reentry process by delivering community-based treatment and other broad-based aftercare services. Treatment practices and/or services are required to be evidence-based as shown through treatment outcomes that are consistent with the RSAT Program objectives.

Applications involving partnerships with community-based substance abuse treatment programs will be given priority consideration.

A new applicant must register with the Online Subgrantee Application System (OSAS) immediately to ensure meeting the application deadline.

Applicants are required to have a Dun & Bradstreet (DUNS) number and to maintain a current registration in the System for Award Management (SAM).

Note: Because federal funds are not always available immediately following the award date, applicants should prepare for this contingency.

Matching contributions of 25% (cash or in-kind) of the total cost of the RSAT for State Prisoners project (federal funds plus local match) are required and must be derived from non-federal sources. All funds designated as match are restricted to the same uses as the federal funds and must be expended within the grant period.

Applicants may utilize crime data that is collected by the MBCC Statistical Analysis Center to include in their proposals. Montana’s Incident-Based Reporting System (MTIBRS) is an analytical/statistical tool. Users can select reports based on offense, offender/arrestee, victim, and property data elements or can create their own custom reports based on multiple variables. Data from 2011 to the most current complete calendar year is available.
