U.S. Department of Justice: Adult Drug Court and Veterans Treatment Court Planning, Training, Technical Assistance, and Resource Center InitiativeDeadline: April 16, 2019
The Adult Drug Court and Veterans Treatment Court Planning, Training, Technical Assistance, and Resource Center Initiative seeks providers to support both Adult Drug Court (ADC) and Veterans Treatment Court (VTC) Program grantees. ADC Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) providers for all categories are expected to participate in an ADC TTA collaborative to work together to assist states, veterans, tribes, and local justice system officials and treatment professionals to implement evidence-based drug court practices.
The objectives of the ADC TTA Initiative are to assist newly established and operational adult drug treatment court programs to:
- Build and maximize capacity
- Ensure drug court participants are identified and assessed for risk and need
- Ensure drug court participants receive targeted research-based services
- Enhance the provision of recovery support services
- Ensure the provision of community reintegration services to achieve long-term recovery
- Assist in collecting and reporting on performance measures and identify and explain trends
All of the selected providers will:
- Identify and implement cost-effective training strategies that prioritize and arrange training events for jurisdictions displaying the highest need, work plan development and approval, and follow-up reporting
- Identify and maintain a list of expert consultants for TA support to grantees; consultants should represent all of the drug court team disciplines
- Expand TTA services to address areas consistent with rural and tribal communities, partnerships with law enforcement, and addressing the opioid crisis, etc.
- Support national and federal partners and the ADC TTA collaborative on related projects and maintain a presence at conferences, workshops, and training events related to drug court programs, budgeting travel costs appropriately
- Participate in The Bureau of Justice Assistance’s (BJA’s) GrantStat, which calls for the collection and analysis of performance data and other relevant grant-level information that enables BJA as well as the TTA partners to be held accountable for the grantee’s and program’s performance as measured against the program’s goals and objectives
