Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $125,000)

The National Drug Court Institute (NDCI) will execute a comprehensive array of technical assistance services to assist Family Dependency Treatment Courts (FDTCs) to develop better program practices, improve program outcomes, and enhance services to promote long-term recovery for parents and safe permanent homes for children. NDCI provides technical assistance services to assist the FDTC field through peer-to-peer consultation, onsite consultation, publications, teleconferencing, email and phone consultation. Under the Family Drug Court Technical Assistance (TA) project, NDCI proposes to accomplish the following goals (1) market FDTC Technical Assistance availability to the drug court field; (2) apply a proven technical assistance protocol and triage process responsive to all drug court programs requesting technical assistance; (4) develop a work plan for on-site TA assignments; (5) work with jurisdictions which have pending TA requests; and (6) evaluate all TA events and utilize the results. TA is provided to ensure the FDTC approach is properly implemented within the parameters of established best practices of the drug court model and child maltreatment case processing to improve child protection outcomes. NDCI will report these measures to OJJDP. NCA/NCF
