Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $424,080)

The New York State Unified Court System will apply the Reclaiming Futures program model to the Nassau County Juvenile Treatment Court. The goals of the integrated program will be to 1) improve the identification of juveniles requiring substance abuse treatment by working with the Nassau County Probation Department to establish greater information sharing and expand the screening and assessment of those juveniles who are the named respondents in juvenile delinquency petitions; and 2) engage juveniles more effectively in treatment by collaborating with the Nassau County Youth Board and community-based service providers to increase the number and variety of effective treatment options available for juveniles in need of substance abuse treatment.

The Center for Court Innovation will conduct an evaluation on the achievement of the goals and specified objectives. In addition, the evaluation will collect all specific performance indicators required under the OJJDP solicitation. CA/NCF
