Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $386,824)

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. Ashland County Health and Human Services will use these grant funds to operate a juvenile drug court serving the Ashland County. The drug court will have the capacity to monitor and treat 12 juveniles, ages 13-16, at any one time. Participants are required to have: 1) family support and 2) no history of violent offense adjudication. Funds will be focused on personnel, contracting other staff, supplies for the drug court, drug testing, treatment services, as well as the process and outcome evaluation component 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).
