    Summary

    The FY 2018 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 2018, eligible projects must fall under one of the following priority areas: 
    • First Responder Partnerships - The purpose of this category is to support multidisciplinary opioid response partnerships that include, at a minimum, a law enforcement/first responder component.
      • Subcategory 1a supports partnerships that focus primarily on law enforcement/first responder and behavioral health and/or public health partnerships.
      • Subcategory 1b supports partnerships that focus not only on law enforcement/first responders and behavioral health, but also on victim services and child welfare. 
    • Technology-assisted Treatment Projects - The Technology-assisted Treatment Projects grant program is designed to pilot, in up to five states, projects that demonstrate how technology can be used to expand treatment and recovery support services to individuals who abuse illicit and prescription opioids and have limited access to treatment and recovery services due to geographic isolation. Applicants may propose the use of technology to allow staff to remotely conduct substance abuse assessments, develop and monitor case plans, monitor medication-assisted treatment, and/or deliver cognitive behavioral treatment
    • System-level Diversion Projects - Applicants must demonstrate a commitment to establish effective diversion programs for offenders who abuse illicit or prescription opioids. Applicants may propose projects that support pretrial diversion, court-based diversion programs (other than drug courts or Veterans treatment courts, which are funded under a separate BJA solicitation), community-based supervision, corrections programs, and/or reentry programs. 
    • Statewide Planning, Coordination, and Implementation Projects - Statewide planning, coordination, and implementation projects are designed to support initiatives jointly planned and implemented by the State Administering Agency (SAA) responsible for directing criminal justice planning and the Single State Agency (SSA) for Substance Abuse Services.
      • Subcategory 4a funds the development of a coordinated plan between the SAA and the SSA to assist localities in engaging and retaining offenders who abuse illicit or prescription opioids in treatment and recovery services; increase the use of diversion; and/or reduce the incidence of overdose death. In addition to supporting the development of a coordinated plan, which is a mandatory project deliverable of Category 4a, applicants may propose training and/or technical assistance programs for localities geared toward improving treatment engagement and client outcomes; tracking, compiling, coordinating, and disseminating statewide and local data; or increasing communication, coordination, and information sharing among state and local programs.
      • Subcategory 4b enables the applicant to provide financial support to localities or a region to implement the strategies in the plan developed as part of Category 4a. These strategies may focus on supporting treatment and recovery service engagement; increasing the use of diversion; and/or supporting initiatives that reduce the incidence of overdose death. 
    • Harold Rogers PDMP Implementation and Enhancement Projects - All applicants must: (1) Agree to work closely with BJAs designated TTA provider(s); (2) Budget for travel expenses for a minimum of two staff to attend one national meeting each year in Washington, D.C. Each national meeting should be budgeted for 3 days. Applicants should also budget for at least two staff to attend a 2-day regional meeting held annually.; (3) Use technical solutions that are compliant with the Prescription Monitoring Information Exchange (PMIX) National Architecture if requesting funds to implement information sharing with other state PDMPs.
    • Public Safety, Behavioral Health, and Public Health Information-sharing Partnerships - To respond effectively to the opioid epidemic, stakeholders need access to timely and accurate data that provide a comprehensive view of the drug abuse environment. Unfortunately, data on drug abuse, treatment, and public safety outcomes are often maintained in different agencies and are not integrated in a way that supports the policy and practice needs of public safety, public health, or behavioral health partners. Applicants will form a multidisciplinary action group that may include (but is not limited to) law enforcement representatives (this may include local law enforcement and/or High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area [HIDTA] Program or fusion center staff), the state or local health department, state medical and pharmacy boards, prosecutors, medical examiner/coroner offices, forensic science laboratories, probation and parole, drug court representatives, child welfare representatives, local drug treatment providers, and community organizations. Applicants must describe how they will collaborate with the PDMP to partner on grant activities, obtain relevant data sets, perform data analysis and assessment, and communicate with stakeholders
