FY 23 Grant Awards - Increasing Access to Mental Health and Substance Use Treatment and Recovery Services

Advancing Community Safety and Justice

OJP is advancing strategies that promote access to treatment and recovery services for individuals with substance use and mental health disorders, while reducing unnecessary justice system involvement whenever possible. OJP's investments are expanding pathways to community-based recovery resources and alternatives to incarceration, as well as equipping justice systems nationwide to effectively respond to and support individuals with behavioral health needs. OJP is investing more than $52 million in FY 23 to help communities address the needs of individuals with mental health and substance use conditions. Funds will be focused on efforts related to crisis response, deflection and diversion, access to treatment and recovery supports within prisons and jails, and other initiatives that increase access to mental health and substance use treatment and recovery services across the justice system.
