The county is applying for a $500,000 grant to expand its Drug Court program.
Dan Saieed, county development director, said the grant would cover 48 months.
Drug Court, which is overseen by Criminal Court Judge Tom Greenholtz, now serves 60 repeat offenders.
The new funding would allow a second Drug Court docket for 30 new clients with no prior felony.
It would also allow a program through Criminal and Sessions Court for 12 months, serving at least 120 individuals.
The grant is through the Justice Assistance program of the U.S. Justice Department.
A 25 percent in-kind match is required, but officials said that can be handled through the existing Drug Court budget.
