Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $450,000)

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. The Administrative Office of the Courts will use this implementation grant to support a family drug court. Child safety and well-being are the primary goals of the Fayette Family Drug Treatment Court (FFDTC), with an emphasis on parent sobriety, creating an environment conducive to improving child-parent relationships, and help parents become productive, self-sufficient citizens. Parents with no history of violent crime or sex offenses and are willing to admit to a substance abuse problem are eligible for FFDTC when their child is removed from their care. 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
