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 and juvenile offenders. Drug court programs funded by the Juvenile and Family Drug 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. Hanover County will use these grant funds to operate a juvenile drug court serving the county. The drug court will have the capacity to monitor and treat 40 juveniles at any one time. The juveniles will: range from 13-17 years of age, have no history of violent offense adjudication or serious mental illness, not have been charged with drug distribution, be willing to participate in the program and have parental support. Funds will be focused on personnel including the Drug Court Coordinator, supplies for the drug court, and support for process and outcome evaluation components of the project. 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).
