In 2016 the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention funded 12 FDCs. This funding opportunity aligns with the national FDC movement working to increase FDC’s capacity and scope of services to children and families. Of the 12 new OJJDP grantees, six sites were awarded implementation funding to create new FDC programs within their jurisdictions and six were awarded enhancement funding to expand the capacity and augment services among their existing FDC programs. Three tribal sites were awarded implementation funding to help bring Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts to tribal jurisdictions.
As the National Family Drug Court TTA Provider, CFF will provide each grantee with comprehensive, individualized, and in-depth training and technical assistance throughout the three year grant program. CFF is also pleased to partner with the Tribal Law and Policy Institute (TLPI) in order to provide the most culturally relevant and effective TTA to grantees from Tribal jurisdictions.
