Grant Description
Grants to USA and territories state, local, and tribal agencies for programs to establish and improve family treatment courts. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to ten days to complete. The purpose of this program is to provide treatment and accountability to parents with substance use and co-occurring disorders by offering access to treatment and recovery services that will ultimately protect children; reunite families, when safe to do so; and expedite permanency. Programs must include the provision of treatment and recovery services to specifically address opioid, stimulant, and other substance use disorders.

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. These courts increase collaboration with substance use treatment providers and child welfare systems to ensure the provision of treatment and other support services for families, and to improve child, parent, and family outcomes.

There are two categories for this solicitation: 

Category 1: Establishing New Family Treatment Courts - Programs funded under Category 1 are expected to implement new family treatment courts to provide parental substance use disorder treatment services, including screening, assessment, case management, recovery support services, and program coordination to family treatment court participants.

Category 2: Enhancing Family Treatment Courts - Programs funded under Category 2 are expected to enhance and/or expand parental substance use disorder treatment services to their participants in existing family treatment courts.

Category 2: Enhancing Family Treatment Courts
Courts applying for funding under Category 2 must be fully operational for at least 1 year, as funding is intended to enhance services of existing family treatment courts.
