Apply Now for OJJDP Family Drug Court Grants

Applications due Wednesday, May 29, 2019

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is seeking applications for funding under the fiscal year 2019 Family Drug Courts Program. Grants are available in three categories:

  • Category 1: Enhancing Family Drug Courts
  • Category 2: Serving Veterans through Family Drug Courts
  • Category 3: Establishing New Family Drug Courts

Category 1 and 2 grants are available to jurisdictions with a fully operational family drug court. Courts applying for funding under category 1 or 2 must be fully operational for at least one year, as
funding is intended to enhance the services of existing family drug courts. Under Category 1, OJJDP expects to make eight (8) awards of up to $750,000 each. Under Category 2, OJJDP expects to make three (3) awards of up to $350,000 each.

Category 3 grants are available to jurisdictions ready to implement a new family drug court. These grants are for jurisdictions where either no family drug court currently exists or a family drug court has been operational for less than one year. Jurisdictions may already have other types of drug or treatment courts (such as adult drug or mental health courts). Under Category 3, OJJDP expects to make three (3) awards of up to $650,000 each.
