Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $649,827)

The National Drug Court Institute (NDCI) proposes to provide training and technical assistance to assist jurisdictions around the country in the design and implementation of a family dependency treatment court (FDTC). Through practitioner-focused training programs, the NDCI proposes to provide 37 jurisdictions from across the country with the core knowledge, skills, and operational focus necessary to properly plan and implement a family dependency treatment court within the parameters of established best practices in the implementation of the drug court model and child abuse and neglect case processing. Although participating planning sites may not have fully operational family dependency treatment courts at the conclusion of the project period, it is expected that these sites will become operational in the first quarter of the following calendar year. NDCI will serve 37 family dependency treatment court planning teams for a total of approximately 1,080 participants through the execution of 15 training programs. NCA/NCF
