Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $447,840)

The Juvenile and Family 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 juvenile offenders. Drug court programs funded by the Juvenile and Family Court Discretionary Grant Program are required by law to target nonviolent offenders. The Program supports the following activities: Juvenile drug court implementation, Family drug court implementation, Single jurisdiction drug court enhancement, Statewide drug court enhancement, and planning efforts. NYS Unified Court System of Broome County will use this implementation grant to support a family drug court. Goals of the Broome County Family Treatment Court (FTC) include rehabilitating participants, reducing substance use, reducing participant recidivism, increasing participant employment/educational achievement, strengthening and reuniting families, and improving permanency for children. Participants are eligible for this program if their children have been removed from the home, with substance abuse as the primary reason for removal. The grantee will report performance measures that include 1) Number of participants arrested for drug charges while participating in the drug court and 2) Number of graduates (participants who have completed all treatment).CA/NCF
