Last year, the National Association of Drug Court Professionals launched a campaign to secure an annual federal investment in Drug Courts of $250 million dollars with the goal of putting a Drug Court within reach of every American in need.
The Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 budget presents our best opportunity to make this vision a reality.
We ask that every member of the Drug Court community take five minutes to send a letter to President Obama, asking for an investment of $250 million in Drug Courts in the FY 2011 budget. There is no better way to ensure that your Drug Court gets sustainment and enhancement funding.
It is critical that our voice is heard!
Mobilize all Drug Court professionals, graduates and concerned citizens, to help ensure that this message reaches President Obama.
The administration must know the Drug Court community stands ready to extend the nation’s most successful justice intervention for addicted offenders to every person in need.
