RECOMMENDATION
Approve the submission of a grant application to the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Justice Programs Bureau of Justice Assistance for the FY2020 Adult Drug Court and Veterans Treatment Court Discretionary Grant Program
BACKGROUND

This program provides financial and technical assistance to states, state courts, local courts, units of local government, and federally recognized Indian tribal governments to implement and enhance the operations of adult drug courts and veterans treatment courts. These courts effectively integrate evidence-based substance abuse treatment, random drug testing, equitable sanctions and incentives, and transitional services in judicially supervised court settings with jurisdiction over offenders to reduce recidivism, substance abuse, and prevent overdoses. For the purposes of this solicitation, an adult “drug court” is defined as a court program managed by a multidisciplinary team that responds to the offenses and treatment needs of participants who are diagnosed with a substance use disorder. This definition explicitly excludes drug offenders who have committed acts of violence.

DISCUSSION
Nueces County will submit an application on behalf of County Court at Law No. 5. The funding would pay for the salary of the drug court coordinator and drug testing to be done for clients. The application will total $500,000 for 36 months. This grant does require a 25 percent cash or in-kind match.
