Grants to Expand Substance Abuse Treatment in Adult Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts and Juvenile Treatment Drug Courts (Short Title: SAMHSA Treatment Drug Courts)

Grants to Expand Substance Abuse Treatment in Adult Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts and Juvenile Treatment Drug Courts (Short Title: SAMHSA Treatment Drug Courts)<http://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=250163> - Eligible applicants include state and local government entities, such as the Tribal Court Administrator, the Administrative Office of the Courts, the SSA for Alcohol and Drug Abuse, the designated State Drug Court Coordinator, or local governmental unit such as county or city agency with direct involvement with the drug court, federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes and tribal organizations, individual adult Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts and juvenile treatment drug courts (tribal or non-tribal). Tribal organization means the recognized body of any AI/AN tribe; any legally established organization of American Indians/Alaska Natives which is controlled, sanctioned, or chartered by such governing body or which is democratically elected by the adult members of the Indian community to be served by such organization and which includes the maximum participation of American Indians/Alaska Natives in all phases of its activities. Consortia of tribes or tribal organizations are eligible to apply, but each participating entity must indicate its approval. When the state/local/tribal government (city/county) or eligible entity applies on behalf of a drug court(s), the applicant will be the award recipient and the entity responsible for satisfying the grant requirements. It is allowable for an eligible applicant to apply on behalf of one or more drug courts within a state/tribe. However, in such situations, one county unit of government must assume the role of lead applicant, which will oversee and administer the grant for the multiple jurisdictions. When multiple jurisdictions or dockets are included within one application, letters of commitment from the drug court judge for each court must be included stating that they intend to meet the requirements of the grant, including the reporting requirements. NOTE: If applicable, you must include these letters of commitment from each drug court judge in Attachment 5 of your application or it will not be reviewed and will not be considered for an award. Public and private nonprofit organizations such as substance abuse treatment providers have a pivotal supporting role in treatment drug court programs and may be sub-recipients/contractors to the applicant. However, they are not the catalysts for entry into drug court and are, therefore, restricted from applying. Eligible drug courts must be operational on or before September 1, 2014. Operational is defined as a having a set of cases and seeing clients in the drug court. By signing the cover page (SF-424) of the application, the authorized representative of the applicant organization is certifying that the drug court(s) applying for funds or receiving funds as part of this grant are currently or will be operational on or before September 1, 2014. The statutory authority for this program prohibits grants to for-profit agencies. Current Closing Date for Applications: March 17, 2014.
