Eligibility: Governments and courts; Funding: $6.4 million for up to eight awards (no match required); Deadline: June 2.
These are capacity building grants to help operating juvenile drug courts improve the way they treat the juveniles who come through the system. DOJ is specifically interested in projects that reduce local barriers to improvements.
Projects must aid local training programs or teams that educate practitioners and their families to meet the needs of the adolescent client and support the development of local programs that will enhance partnerships among judges, representatives from behavioral health treatment programs, juvenile justice, social services, school and vocational training programs.
