Taskforce Projects

The HOPE Taskforce was provided with $100,000 from the DuPage County Board, and will support two projects with these funds. These are the initial projects of focus from the HOPE Taskforce. As additional resources become available, the Taskforce will make additional recommendations on how to best utilize that funding.

Strategy #1: Substance Use Treatment Navigation

Funding: $50,000 + In Kind

Goal: Expand services to more effectively link individuals to treatment services.

Lead Agency: DuPage County Health Department

Strategy #2: Specialty Court for First Time Drug Offenders

Funding: $50,000 + In Kind

Goal: Coordinate with criminal justice system partners and treatment providers to increase the screening, oversight, education and treatment referrals for first-time drug offenders.

Lead Agency: DuPage County 18th Judicial Circuit Court
