SAMHSA's Grant to Expand Substance Abuse Treatment Capacity in Adult Treatment Drug Courts and Adult Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts
Due Date: January 4, 2018
Recipients will be expected to provide a coordinated, multi-system approach designed to combine the sanctioning power of treatment drug courts with effective SUD treatment services to break the cycle of criminal behavior, alcohol and/or drug use, and incarceration or other penalties. Applicants should propose to increase access and availability of services to a larger number of clients increasing the number of individuals served and the gaps in the continuum of treatment for individuals in these courts who have treatment needs for SUD and/or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders. Grant funds must be used to serve people diagnosed with a SUD as their primary condition. SAMHSA will use discretion in allocating funding for these awards, taking into consideration the specific drug court model (ATDCs and Adult Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts), as appropriate, the number of applications received per model type, and geographic distribution.
NOTE: At least 5 awards will be made to tribes/tribal organizations pending sufficient application volume from these groups.
