OJJDP seeking applications for FY21 Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Program
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention is seeking applications for funding for the fiscal year (FY) 2021 Juvenile Drug Court Treatment Program. As described in the funding opportunity announcement (FOA), this program furthers the Department’s mission by providing resources to State, local, and tribal governments to create and enhance juvenile drug treatment court programs for youth in the justice system with substance use problems, specifically related to opioid use. The program has two grant categories: Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Planning and Implementation and Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Enhancement. Category 1 grants are available to jurisdictions that want to establish a juvenile drug treatment court, and Category 2 grants are available to jurisdictions with a fully operational (for at least 1 year) juvenile drug treatment court to enhance the operation of the court. The closing date of applications is February 19th, 2021. More information about the program and how to apply can be found here.
