    Summary

    The FY 2019 Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program (COAP) is designed to support our nations first responders and provide for the needs of crime victims; support diversion programs for non-violent individuals who abuse illicit and prescription opioids; implement and enhance prescription drug monitoring programs; promote cross-system planning and coordination of service delivery; and reduce the incidence of fatal overdoses associated with opioid use. Effective responses must be comprehensive and address the needs of the individual who is abusing drugs, as well as any children and loved ones who may be experiencing trauma, violence, and victimization. 


    The objectives of the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Site-based Program are to:

    • Expand law enforcement and victim service partnerships.
    • Encourage and support comprehensive cross-system planning and collaboration among officials who work in law enforcement, pretrial services, the courts, probation and parole, child welfare, reentry, PDMPs, and emergency medical services, as well as health care providers, public health partners, and agencies that provide substance abuse treatment and recovery support services.
    • Develop and implement strategies to identify and provide treatment and recovery support services to œhigh frequency utilizers of multiple systems (e.g., health care, child welfare, criminal justice) who have a history of opioid abuse.
    • Expand law enforcement diversion programs.
    • Expand the availability of treatment and recovery support services in rural or tribal communities by expanding the use to technology-assisted treatment and recovery support services.
    • Implement and enhance prescription drug monitoring programs.
    • Develop and enhance public safety, behavioral health, and public health information-sharing partnerships that leverage key public health and public safety data sets (e.g., de-identified PDMP data, naloxone administrations, fatal and non-fatal overdose data, drug arrests) and develop interventions based on this information.

    In FY 2019, eligible projects must fall under one of the following priority areas: 

    • Locally Driven Responses to the Opioid Epidemic - The objective of Category 1 is to encourage and support the development of comprehensive, locally driven responses to the opioid epidemic that expand access to supervision, treatment, and recovery support services across the criminal justice system; support law enforcement and other first responder diversion programs for non-violent drug offenders; promote education and prevention activities; and address the needs of children impacted by the opioid epidemic. All projects are expected to involve multiple agencies and partners.
    • Statewide Implementation, Enhancement, and Evaluation Projects - The objective of Category 2 is to support states in their efforts to implement, enhance, or evaluate effective opioid-related efforts within the criminal justice system. This includes the following subcategories:
      • (2a) Statewide Implementation Projects - State applicants may request funding to (1) implement new opioid-intervention programs in a minimum of six geographically diverse localities or regions within the State OR to (2) implement new opioid-intervention programs in a minimum of three geographically diverse localities or regions within the state. Project funds in this category should be focused on implementing new programs, not enhancing existing programs.
      • (2b) Statewide Enhancement or Evaluation - State applicants may request funding to enhance or evaluate existing opioid-intervention programs in a minimum of three geographically diverse localities or regions within the state. 
      • (2c) A state that would like to implement new initiatives AND enhance or evaluate existing initiatives may apply for both Subcategories 2a and 2b. Applicants may include all the necessary components of both subcategories in the single application.
    • Harold Rogers PDMP Implementation and Enhancement Projects - The objective of Category 3 is to strengthen the nations PDMP system and support enhancements to PDMPs that improve clinical decision making and prevent the abuse and diversion of controlled substances.
     

    History of Funding

    Since 2017, BJA has supported innovative work in over 200 COAP sites. Examples of successful BJA-funded COAP projects can be found at: https://www.coapresources.org/#COAPHOME. 

    Additional Information

    For each category, only one application by any particular applicant entity will be considered. An entity may, however, be proposed as a subrecipient (subgrantee) in more than one application. This includes applications that propose to serve a region that crosses state boundaries. Subrecipients may include treatment providers, victim service providers, and other not-for-profit entities as part of a comprehensive cross-disciplinary response as outlined in Categories 1 and 2. If an agency wishes to apply under multiple categories, a separate application is needed for each category of funding
