Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories state and local governments, tribal governments, and IHEs for initiatives to enhance outcomes for people with mental illness and drug addiction within the justice system. Interested applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to help entities prepare, create, or expand comprehensive plans to implement collaboration programs that target preliminarily qualified individuals and promote public safety and public health for people with MHDs and MHSUDs who come in contact with the justice system.

JMHCP specifically funds collaborative programs to reduce justice involvement and improve outcomes for individuals with MHDs or MHSUDs who have come into contact with the criminal justice system or are leaving a custodial setting. Program activities include: connecting individuals with MHDs or MHSUDs with treatment and social services through crisis stabilization units and pre-arrest diversion, creating or expanding mental health courts or other court-based approaches to preliminarily qualified individuals, increasing prosecutor- or defense-led diversion strategies, developing supported employment for people with behavioral health needs, utilizing specialized caseloads for probation, cross-system training of public safety officials and mental health providers, and increasing intergovernmental cooperation between state and local governments to support individuals with MHDs or MHSUDs.

Objectives:

  1. Enhance, expand, and operate mental health drop-off crisis stabilization treatment centers that provide 24/7, year-round support for law enforcement, criminal justice agencies, and people who come in contact with the justice system. These centers can provide, but are not limited to, the following services: screening and assessment, crisis care, residential treatment, assisted outpatient mental health treatment, primary care services, telehealth, competency restoration, community transition, and reentry support such as connections to housing.
  2. Increase community workforce and capacity for certified mental health peer support specialists and increase the availability of wraparound services evidenced to support people with MHD and MHSUD.
  3. Build or expand existing mental health collaboration programs across people and places in any part of the criminal justice system — such as jails, courts, and prosecutors — as well as community supervision and/or capacity building for criminal justice professionals to target individuals with MHD and MHSUDs at risk of recidivism.
