Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $719,724)

Section 101 of the Second Chance Act authorizes the Department of Justice to award grants to states, units of local government, and tribal governments to improve reentry outcomes for incarcerated youth. Under the Second Chance Act Ensuring Public Safety and Improving Outcomes for Youth in Confinement and While Under Community Supervision program, Category 1: Implementing Evidence-Based Substance Abuse and Mental Health Treatment Services will support states, units of local government, and tribes to improve and expand the provision of evidence-based, trauma-informed treatment services for youth with co-occurring substance abuse problems and mental health disorders, including addressing behavioral health impacts and criminogenic needs while in secure confinement and during pre-and post-release.

The Boulder County Department of Housing and Human Services in partnership with Integrated Managed Partnership for Adolescent and Child Community Treatment (IMPACT) will expand implementation of the nationally recognized Assessment Framework, along the service delivery continuum for detained youth with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders. The key components of this initiative include: valid initial assessments, immediate and ongoing data-driven case planning, evidence-based therapeutic services, and individualized support services. This initiative will generalize the Assessment Framework to serve detained youth who are struggling with mental health and substance abuse disorders. This initiative will allow IMPACT to expand implementation of key systems in order to enhance access, engagement, appropriateness and effectiveness of services, and community linkages for youth returning to the community from secure confinement.
