Delaware Criminal Justice Council (CJC)
Grants to Delaware government agencies, nonprofits, and law enforcement agencies for programs to provide substance abuse treatment services. New applicants must register with the online system at least one week before the deadline. Funding is intended to reduce drug-related incarcerations and deaths.
Subgrants will be awarded that assist and provide financial support to units of local government and community services agencies to implement strategies that support treatment and recovery service engagement; increase the use of diversion and alternatives to incarceration; and reduce the incidence of overdose death. The proposed project will support and enhance the local and state capacity to respond to opioid misuse through subgrant programs.
Project Goals include: 1. Assist localities in improving the engagement and retention of justice-involved individuals with opioid use disorders in treatment and recovery services; 2.
