    Summary

    The Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program (COSSAP) aims to reduce the impact of opioids, stimulants, and other substances on individuals and communities, including a reduction in the number of overdose fatalities, as well as mitigate the impacts on crime victims by supporting comprehensive, collaborative initiatives.  


    The objective of the COSSAP is 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 2020, eligible projects must fall under one of the following program areas: 

    • Category 1: Local applications - Projects encourage and support the development of comprehensive, locally driven responses to opioids, stimulants, and other substances 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 nonviolent drug offenders; promote education and prevention activities; and address the needs of children impacted by substance abuse.
    • Category 2: Applications from states on behalf of county, local, municipal, or tribal communities - Projects support states in their efforts to implement and enhance one or more of the allowable activities detailed under Category 1 in a minimum of six geographically diverse counties, localities, or regions. The state may retain funds for administrative purposes that support the mandatory deliverables and/or independent evaluation of project activities. The balance of the funds must be subawarded to local communities, regions, or tribal entities. 

    Priority consideration will be provided for applicants who meet one or more of the following:

    • Host a project within a state or region that has been disproportionately impacted by the abuse of illicit opioids, stimulants, or others substances. This is evidenced, in part, by (1) A high rate of primary treatment admissions for heroin or other opioids; (2) High rates of overdose deaths; and/or (3) A lack of accessibility to treatment providers and facilities and to emergency medical services.
    • Address specific challenges that rural communities face.
    • Demonstrate that the individuals who are intended to benefit from the requested grant reside in high-poverty areas or persistent-poverty counties.
    • Offer enhancements to public safety in economically distressed communities (Qualified Opportunity Zones). 
     

    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
