Grants to USA and Territories tribal governments, state and local agencies, and courts for programs related to the criminal justice system. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for programs to enhance drug court services, to include coordination, management of drug court participants, and recovery support services.
The ADC and VTC Program supports efforts by state, local, and tribal courts to address the needs of individuals in the criminal justice system with substance abuse issues, including targeting the needs of veterans. These courts effectively integrate evidence-based substance abuse treatment, random drug testing, equitable sanctions and incentives, and transitional services in judicially supervised court settings with jurisdiction over offenders to reduce recidivism and substance abuse, and prevent overdoses.
Eligible drug court types are: ADCs; DWI/driving under the influence (DUI) courts; co-occurring courts (participants possess both a substance abuse and mental illness diagnosis); VTCs (Types A and B); and THWCs. Court programs that combine or propose to combine drug court types with other court programs or dockets are also eligible for funding, although the funding under this program must be used to address only those clients eligible for drug court services. Applicants should refer to their relevant local statutes for definitions of the legal age of an “adult.”
The FY 2021 ADC and VTC Discretionary Grant solicitation offers the following four grant categories:
In FY 2021, priority will be given to proposals that focus on the development or expansion of a state-based TTA program that will enhance the capacity of states to support local ADC and VTC TTA needs. This includes training to address staff turnover, offer operational skills updates, and expand treatment resources in locations with critical substance abuse issues. States are encouraged to submit applications that seek funds for smaller, short-term projects that will provide statewide training conferences, scholarships to attend key training events, including national drug court conferences, and other operational training to support local capacity.
More information about the categories can be found starting at https://bja.ojp.gov/sites/g/files/xyckuh186/files/media/document/O-BJA-2021-46003.pdf#page=7.
