OJP is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights and racial equity, increases access to justice, supports crime victims and individuals impacted by the justice system, strengthens community safety and protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement
and the community.
With this solicitation, BJA seeks providers to deliver a range of training and technical assistance (TTA), resources, and information to BJA-funded adult treatment courts, veterans treatment courts, community courts, and to the treatment court field at large, as well as to the statewide drug court coordinators who lead this work in their states.
Providers for all categories in this solicitation are expected to participate in the BJA Adult Treatment Court Training and Technical Assistance Collaborative (TTA Collaborative) and work together to assist local, state, and tribal courts to plan, implement, and enhance the operations of treatment courts consistent with the most current evidence-based practices to include the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) Best Practice Standards and the 10 Key Components of Drug Courts.
Selected providers will, with guidance from BJA:
Identify and implement cost-effective training strategies that prioritize and arrange training events for jurisdictions with the highest need.
Identify and maintain a list of expert consultants who will provide technical assistance (TA) support to grantees and represent all treatment court team disciplines.
Expand services to increase access to evidence-based treatment (i.e.
medication-assisted treatment) and recovery support services, and achieving racial equity.
Support national and federal partners and the TTA Collaborative on related projects and maintain a presence at conferences, workshops, and training events related to treatment court programs, budgeting travel costs appropriately.
Participate in BJA’s GrantStat, which calls for the collection and analysis of performance data and other relevant grant-level information which serves to hold BJA as well as the TTA Collaborative accountable for each BJA grantee’s performance as measured against the goals and objectives of their award.
