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.

The Family Drug Court Program (FDCP) will use these funds to enhance the parents participation in the FDCP, so that they can regain custody of their children. Also they will continue to provide services that will improve relationship with children and increase outcomes of successful family reunification, which will ultimately improve parent motivation to complete the FDCP.
