10/1/08 - Chippewa Cree courts get $800,000 for three programs

Author:

The Chippewa Cree Tribe's court system has received three grants to help address substance abuse and tribal justice problems on the Rocky Boy's Indian Reservation. The tribal court received $800,000 over three years to expand services for the tribe's Wellness Drug Court. The court currently serves 40 people a year, but the funding could help them reach 80, for a total of 240 over the three years, the tribe reported. The funding is from the SAMHSA Center for Substance Abuse Treatment.
