Memorandum
This resolution seeks Council approval for a grant contract with the Michigan Supreme Court State Court Administrative Office (SCAO) to fund the 15th Judicial District Court Veterans Treatment Court program, and further seeks authorization to accept and allocate grant funds from the State Court Administrative Office Michigan Veterans Treatment Court Grant Program (SCAO-MVTCGP) for that purpose without regard to City Fiscal Year.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: No matching funds are required for acceptance of this grant award.

The 15th Judicial District Court Veterans Treatment Court program is a problem-solving court that uses a combination of drug court and mental health court principles to help eligible veterans address the military service related mental health disorders and substance use issues that have led them to be criminal justice system involved. The Court collaborates with Ann Arbor Veterans Administration, Ann Arbor Veterans Affairs Medical System as well as other treatment providers to attain needed services for participants. Additionally, participants are linked with ancillary services such as education, housing, job skills or other individualized assistance.

At the discretion of the City Finance Director, the Court will establish a separate grant account with the City Finance Department and will take all other necessary steps to assure the effective administration of this grant award.
