Adult Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program
States, state courts, local courts, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments can apply for grant funding through the government's Bureau of Justice Assistance. The deadline to complete the application for The Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program is June 5. Funds may be used to to establish or enhance drug court services, to include coordination, management of drug court participants, and recovery support services.
Drug courts are eligible to apply if they effectively integrate substance abuse treatment, mandatory drug testing, sanctions and incentives, and transitional services in a judicially supervised court setting with nonviolent, substance-abusing offenders.
