Agency Solicitation:

The OJJDP Family Treatment Court Program 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 and child welfare systems to ensure the provision of treatment and other services for families, and improve child, parent, and family outcomes.


Additional Notes:

Category 1: Establishing New Family Treatment Courts grants are available to jurisdictions that are ready to implement a new family treatment court. These grants are for jurisdictions where either no family treatment court currently exists or a family treatment court has been operational for less than 1 year. Jurisdictions may already have other types of drug or treatment courts (such as adult drug or mental health courts).

Category 2: Enhancing Family Treatment Courts grants are available to jurisdictions with a fully operational family treatment court. 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.
