Some area juvenile justice and substance abuse programs received a big financial boost from the state.

The Governor's Criminal Justice Division (CJD) awarded nearly $9 million in grants to 116 agencies across Texas.

Thirty-seven drug treatment agencies will use half of the money to provide support services, academic training, assistance, and counseling.

Seventy-nine juvenile justice programs will put the remainder of the money towards developing research, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation services.

Each year, the CJD awards more than $113 million in grants to various juvenile justice, criminal justice, and victim services programs.

The following were among the local recipients of the grants:

Brazos Valley Council of Governments Juvenile Justice Alternatives- $34,841
Walker County Juvenile Intervention Services- $19,600
Montgomery County CARE- $98,179
Power Recovery Court- $118,377
