Awards_OJJDPThe U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is seeking applications for funding under the FY 2019 Family Drug Courts Program. The program seeks to build the capacity of states, state and local courts, units of local government, and federally recognized tribal governments to sustain existing family drug courts or establish new family drug courts. Family drug courts serve parents who require treatment for substance addictions and who are involved with the child welfare system. Family drug courts provide intensive judicial monitoring and interventions using a multi-disciplinary approach to treat parents’ substance addictions and/or co-occurring mental illnesses and substance addictions.

The solicitation provides further details about the program. Applications are due by May 29.
