Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2004, $448,902)

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.

Greene County will use this implementation grant to support a family drug court. Child safety and well-being are the primary goals of the Greene County Family Dependency Treatment Court (FDTC), with emphasis in the areas of permanency for children, parent sobriety, and reduced recidivism of child abuse and neglect. Parents are eligible for drug court when a child protection case is filed with parental substance abuse as an underlying cause for removal.
