Grants to California detention facilities to address substance use. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to submitting a proposal. Funding is intended to provide inmates with substance use disorder treatments and prepare and assist participants with reintegration into communities. The principal purpose of the RSAT Program is to break the cycle of drugs and violence by reducing the demand, use, and trafficking of illegal drugs.

The goal of the RSAT Program are to enhance the capability of states, and units of local and tribal government to:
  • Provide substance use disorder treatment for incarcerated inmates;
  • Prepare participants for their reintegration into the communities from which they came by incorporating reentry planning activities into treatment programs; and
  • Assist participants through the community reentry process by delivering community-based treatment and other broad-based aftercare services.

The California RSAT funding for this grant period will be used to support local jail-based programs which must include both an “in-jail” component and an “aftercare” component. Funding may be directed at either the in-custody portion of the project, the aftercare portion, or both.

Dependant on number of submissions received, application process, etc.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Term of Contract:

Grant Period: July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2024

Successful applicants will be funded for a three-year cycle, with the first year commencing July 1, 2021 and ending on June 30, 2022. A non-competitive Request for Application (RFA) for continuation funding will be issued for the second year (July 1, 2022 - June 30, 2023) and the third year (July 1, 2023 - June 30, 2024). Continued funding for the second and third years is contingent on the amount and availability of federal funding and on compliance with the RSAT program requirements. Applicants shall build their proposal, objectives, activities, and budget information for the first 12 months of the grant cycle.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible Applicants: Local Adult Detention Facilities

Counties that operate adult local detention facilities are eligible to apply and receive funding for the grant period. Only one proposal per county may be submitted. A duly authorized county officer or department head responsible for the operation of the local detention facility may submit the proposal on behalf of the county.

While the intent is to receive a wide range of proposals representing California’s diverse detention facilities, only the most meritorious proposals will be funded. Departments that have already developed RSAT substance abuse treatment programs but are seeking to continue or expand upon those efforts, as well as departments considering implementing a program for the first time, are encouraged to apply. Programs previously awarded BJA RSAT funds through BSCC are eligible to apply.

Applicants must be able to provide a jail-based substance use disorder treatment program that includes aftercare services. RSAT funding may be used for the in-custody component, the aftercare component or both. Applicants will be expected to identify any non-grant related funding that will be leveraged to support the overall program.
