CY17 Treatment Alternatives and Diversion (TAD) Grant Awards Announced

In September, as required under the state statute, the Wisconsin Department of Justice announced the recipients of Treatment Alternatives and Diversion (TAD) funding as a result of the calendar year 2017 competitive grant process.  The awards for calendar year 2017 represent the beginning of a new five-year funding cycle.

DOJ is responsible for administering the TAD grants.  DOJ, in collaboration with partner agencies including the Wisconsin Department of Corrections (DOC), the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), the Director of State Courts Office, and the Wisconsin State Public Defender’s Office, developed the competitive grant process, reviewed the grant applications, and also offered a series of trainings to counties and tribes on project planning, grant writing, and the application process, prior to the application deadline.

2015 Wisconsin Act 388 expanded TAD program funding by $2 million, bringing the total TAD funding amount to more than $6 million for calendar year 2017. As a result of this competitive process, TAD projects will now be funded in 46 counties and 2 tribes in Wisconsin.
