Default 4 Million in Grants to Rehabilitate, Reduce Recidivism among Military Vets

Justice Department Announces over $4 Million in Grants to Rehabilitate and Reduce Recidivism among Military Veterans

The Department of Justice today announced awards totaling over $4 million to 13 state and local jurisdictions to help them use evidence-based principles and practices to rehabilitate and ultimately reduce recidivism among military veterans.
The awards, funded under the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s 2016 Adult Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program, provide government court systems with financial and technical assistance to develop and implement Veterans Treatment Courts that tailor substance abuse treatment, mandatory drug testing, sanctions and incentives, and other transitional services for military veterans who are substance abusers. One in six veterans who served in either Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Iraqi Freedom suffer from substance abuse, according to the nonprofit Justice for Vets[external link].
