Additional Information on Eligibility
In the Treatment Drug Court model, judges have the authority to assign clients to treatment facilities/programs as they deem appropriate. In other words, the drug court judge, not the treatment program, is the catalyst for enrollment into community-based treatment programming. Because the Treatment Drug Court judge is the pivotal figure and not the public and private nonprofit organization, SAMHSA/CSAT is restricting eligibility to existing individual adult treatment drug courts that have demonstrated relationships/agreements with existing community-based substance abuse treatment providers in order to create the necessary networks to successfully implement these grants. Furthermore, it is the intention of this program to provide funding to enhance and/or expand treatment and recovery support for individual drug courts. Some State or County Court integrated/consolidated systems require that individual drug courts apply through the State or County. In those cases, if the State or County is the applicant, it will be the award recipient and the entity responsible for satisfying the grant requirements. This approach is permitted, but all grant funds awarded must be dedicated to the individual drug court with the exception of a small set aside, not to exceed two percent of the total award, that is permissible to cover the cost of administration and oversight of the grant. This grant program is not intended to provide start-up funds to create new treatment drug courts. Therefore, it is essential that applicant drug courts have been operational for at least one year at the time of application. Operational is defined as a judge being designated as a "drug court" judge with a "drug court" docket of cases and seeing defendants in "drug court" on a regular and recurring basis for at least one year prior to the submission of the grant application. By signing the cover page (SF 424 v2) of the application, the authorized representative of the applicant organization is certifying that the Treatment Drug Court for which grant funds are requested is operational as defined above.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Substance Abuse Treatment is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2008 Grants to Expand Substance Abuse Treatment in Adult Drug Courts. The purpose of the program is to expand and/or enhance substance abuse treatment services in "problem solving" courts which use the treatment drug court model in order to provide alcohol and drug treatment, recovery support services supporting substance abuse treatment, screening, assessment, case management, and program coordination to adult defendants/offenders. Priority for the use of the funding should be given to addressing gaps in the continuum of treatment.Grantees will be expected to provide a coordinated, multi-system approach designed to combine the sanctioning power of treatment drug courts with effective treatment services to break the cycle of criminal behavior, alcohol and/or drug use, and incarceration or other penalties. Treatment Drug Courts use regular appearances of the client before a judge (who is part of, or guided by, a team of relevant professionals) in order to monitor compliance with court ordered conditions and substance abuse treatment. SAMHSA intends that its services grants result in the delivery of services as soon as possible after award. Service delivery should begin by the 4th month of the project at the latest. Treatment Drug Court grants are authorized under Section 509 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended. This announcement addresses Healthy People 2010 focus area 26 (Substance Abuse) of the Public Health Service Act.
