On behalf of the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the Institute for Intergovernmental Research (IIR) is releasing the ODMAP Statewide Expansion and Response Grant solicitation. This is part of a series of demonstration projects funded under the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program (COAP). These demonstration projects are designed to build capacity, foster cross-sector collaboration, and support innovation.
The ODMAP Statewide Expansion and Response Grant is designed to support the statewide adoption of ODMAP as well as the development of highly coordinated public safety, behavioral health, and public health responses to the data, focusing on “hot spots” and trends of concern. It is anticipated that the majority of grant funding will be used to support cross-sector partnerships that are structured in such a way that local communities can make meaningful use of the data collected through ODMAP to deploy interventions targeting specific geographic areas or high-risk individuals.
Under this solicitation, up to six states will be selected for grant awards up to $700,000, each for a 24-month period.
How to Apply
Applicants are limited to state agencies or territories. Applicants with existing data tracking systems that capture fatal and nonfatal overdose data can apply to serve as demonstration sites by agreeing to make existing data available through ODMAP. Applicants that have partially or fully implemented ODMAP are encouraged to apply.
Applications are due no later than 5:00 p.m., ET, on June 27, 2019. For more details, you may access the full announcement at ODMAP Statewide Expansion and Response.
Should you have any questions about the application process or issues with submission, please send an email to COAP@iir.com.
