California Drug Court Budget Reduction Implementation
On November 19, 2001, the Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP) provided formal notification to it's grantees of a $3 million budget reduction of the drug court program budget for Fiscal Year 2001-2002. The drug court program budget funds the Comprehensive Drug Court Implementation (CDCI) and Drug Court Partnership (DCP) grants.
In collaboration with the Judicial Council, ADP has established a reduction policy that reduces drug court funding equitably between counties and defers the implementation, of the 17.5 percent reduction, to the local level.
The amount of reduction applied to either or both grants is to be determined locally. ADP has contacted each of its grantees, provided a summary of the county's reduction, and requested a reduction plan describing the reductions to each grant. The reduction plan consists of all the applicable drug court budget reduction forms.
As the new budgets for each grant are created, grantees have been cautioned that the requirements of each Request for Applications continue to be in force.
Note: The Request for Applications are only available in PDF format. If needed, download and install Acrobat Reader from Adobe's web site prior to attempting to download the documents listed below.
A report of the local reduction plan's general impacts has also been requested of each county.
Both reports must be completed, approved by the Alcohol and Drug Program Administrator and Presiding Judge, and returned to ADP by December 14, 2001.
