December 5, 2014
OJJDP has awarded funding to five states under the Statewide System Reform Program (SSRP) to expand family drug courts to help families in the child welfare system who are affected by substance abuse. Children and Family Futures will provide technical assistance to the grantees through the OJJDP-funded National Family Drug Court Training and Technical Assistance Program. The grant builds on the OJJDP-sponsored publication "Guidance to States: Recommendations for Developing Family Drug Court Guidelines."
The five SSRP grantees are:
- Alabama Administrative Office of Courts
- Colorado Judicial Department
- Judicial Branch of Iowa
- New York State Unified Court System
- Supreme Court of Ohio
