Held on May 2, 2023, this webinar assisted eligible applicants interested in applying for the OJJDP FY 2023 Family Treatment Court Program Solicitation. It provided a general overview of the program, the goals and objectives, a discussion about the application process, and a Q&A opportunity for participants.
With this solicitation, OJJDP seeks to build the capacity of local courts, units of local government, and federally recognized Tribal governments to establish new family treatment courts or enhance existing family treatment courts.
With this solicitation, OJJDP seeks to support states' and counties' implementation of innovative and/or research-based, data-informed recidivism-reduction policies, practices, and programs across multiple juvenile justice system components and disciplines, and sustainable strategies for reinvesting resulting costs saved or averted into effective juvenile justice prevention and intervention programs.
The goal of this program is to implement youth defense delivery system enhancements that strengthen and improve youth defense. This program supports states and localities, through a combination of direct grants and national training and technical assistance, to implement sustainable system improvements that result in improved youth outcomes, reduced recidivism, safer communities, cost savings, and increased public confidence in the juvenile justice system.
