Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2003, $252,989)

The Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program is designed to assist states, state courts, local courts, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments in developing and establishing drug courts for substance-abusing adult and juvenile offenders. Drug court programs funded by the Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program are required by law to target nonviolent offenders. The Program supports the following activities: Adult drug court implementation, Juvenile drug court implementation, Family drug court implementation, Single jurisdiction drug court enhancement, Statewide drug court enhancement, and planning efforts.

In 1998, Sheridan County applied for and was awarded a $394,784, two year drug court implementation grant to develop its adult drug court for misdemeanor offenders. In 1999, the Drug Court Team made the decision to expand the target population to include juveniles as a means of dealing with the increasing frequency of juvenile misdemeanor offenders whose crimes were drug or alcohol related. The purpose of this grant is to receive the funding needed to fully enhance the Juvenile Drug Court by separating it from the Adult Court, provide for additional judicial monitoring of participants, eliminate the in-house intensive outpatient treatment services delivered by Drug Court staff, execute contracts for age-appropriate, gender-specific intensive outpatient services, and improve the retention rates for both Courts.
