OJJDP Announces Juvenile Drug Court Solicitations for FY 2008

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has announced the following FY 2008 solicitations related to juvenile drug courts:

  • Brief Interventions and Referrals to Treatment (BIRT) for Juvenile Courts and Juvenile Drug Courts, a collaborative initiative between OJJDP and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, seeks to enhance the capacity of juvenile and juvenile drug courts to enhance the availability of BIRT and to establish partnerships between juvenile and juvenile drug courts to ensure that substance abusing juvenile offenders receive effective and appropriate treatment. Applicants are limited to states, state and local courts, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments, acting directly or through agreement with other public or private entities.
  • The Juvenile Drug Court Training and Technical Assistance Program is intended to build the capacity of states, state and local courts, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments to develop, maintain, and enhance drug courts for substance-abusing juvenile offenders. Through this solicitation, OJJDP seeks a provider to deliver training and technical assistance to juvenile and family drug courts interested in learning about and implementing BIRT. Applicants are limited to for-profit (commercial) organizations, nonprofit organizations, faith-based and community organizations, and institutions of higher learning.

The application deadline for each of these solicitations is July 3, 2008, and applicants should register with Grants.gov as early as possible to prevent delays in submitting their applications by the deadline.
