The drug court in Nuevo León is the only one of its kind in Mexico, and it is considered an important part of Mexico’s drug demand reduction efforts.Funding for any award(s) will come from the U. S. Embassy in Mexico City’s Drug Demand Reduction (DDR) program, which is part of the Merida Initiative.

The goal of the DDR program is to assist the Government of Mexico in strengthening its ability to diagnose and treat drug addiction, as part of a larger effort to fight organized crime.

Financing projects related to the development of drug courts in Mexico forms part of the DDR program’s goals.

Drug courts, which combine treatment with incentives, sanctions, random drug testing, and aftercare, are a proven tool for improving public health and public safety.

They provide an innovative mechanism for promoting collaboration among the judiciary, prosecutors, community corrections agencies, drug treatment providers, and other community support groups.

These special courts have been operating in the United States for more than 20 years, and their effectiveness is well-documented.

The drug court model is a cost‐effective way to increase the percentage of addicted offenders who achieve sustained recovery, thereby improving public safety and reducing costs associated with re‐arrest and additional incarceration.Nonetheless, please note that this RFA is not limited to organizations based in the United States.

Applications will be accepted from organizations located in any nation, as well as from “international organizations” as defined by 22 U.S.C.

§ 288, that meet the minimum eligibility criteria.

Organizations may also form a consortium and submit a joint proposal, but one organization must be designated as the lead applicant.

Please note that an application package has been added.
