The Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Program builds the capacity of states, state and local courts, units of local government, and federally recognized tribal governments to enhance existing drug courts or implement new juvenile drug treatment courts (JDTCs) for individuals with substance abuse problems or co-occurring mental health disorders, including histories of trauma. The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) expects successful applicants to develop and implement a sustainability plan during the grant period to continue operation of the drug court when the grant ends.
This solicitation is composed of two grant categories. Applicants must clearly designate the category for which they are applying:
- Category 1: Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Planning
- Category 2: Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Enhancement
Eligible applicants are limited to states, territories, State courts, local courts, units of local government, 1 and federally recognized Indian tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior) acting on behalf of a single jurisdiction drug court. Faith- and community-based, nonprofit, and for-profit organizations are ineligible as applicants, but OJJDP encourages them to partner with eligible applicants as a community provider of services, if applicable and appropriate. Applications are due May 30, 2019.
