    Summary

    The goals of the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Site-based Program are two-fold. First, the program aims to reduce opioid misuse and the number of overdose fatalities. Second, the program supports the implementation, enhancement, and proactive use of prescription drug monitoring programs to support clinical decision-making and prevent the misuse and diversion of controlled substances.

    The objectives of the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Site-based Program are to:
    • 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, emergency medical services and health care providers, public health partners, and agencies that provide substance misuse 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, etc.) who have a history of opioid misuse.
    • Expand diversion and alternatives to incarceration 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 multi-disciplinary projects that leverage key data sets (e.g., de-identified PDMP data, naloxone administrations, fatal and non-fatal overdose data, drug arrests, etc.) to create a holistic view of the environment and develop interventions based on this information.
    • Objectively assess and/or evaluate the impact of innovative and evidence-based strategies to engage and serve justice-involved individuals with a history of opioid misuse
    In FY 2017, eligible projects must fall under one of the following priority areas: 
    • Overdose Outreach Projects: Innovative communities throughout the nation are piloting new approaches to connecting an overdose survivor to services. This includes models that use law enforcement, in partnership with peer recovery coaches or treatment providers, to connect overdose survivors with services in the days that follow a non-fatal overdose. Applicants must identify a project coordinator to manage the day-to-day operations of the initiative. Priority consideration will be given to applicants that:
      • Demonstrate that they have been disproportionately impacted by the illegal opioid epidemic as evidenced, in part, by high rates of primary treatment admissions for heroin and other opioids; high rates of overdose deaths from heroin and other opioids; and/or a lack of accessibility to treatment providers and facilities or to emergency medical services.
      • Include an action researcher that will assist in the identification of the problem, design of the solution, and evaluation of the proposed initiative.
    • Technology-assisted Treatment Projects: Applicants may propose the use of secure and innovative technology to conduct substance abuse assessments, develop and monitor case plans, monitor medication assisted treatment, and/or deliver cognitive behavioral treatment remotely to justice-involved individuals with opioid use disorders. Priority consideration will be given to applicants that:
      • Demonstrate that the state, or regions within the state, have been disproportionally impacted by the illegal opioid epidemic as evidenced, in part, by high rates of primary treatment admissions for heroin and other opioids; high rates of overdose deaths from heroin and other opioids; and/or a lack of accessibility to treatment providers and facilities and to emergency medical services.
      • Are rural states with underserved communities.
    • System-level Diversion and Alternatives to Incarceration Projects: Category 3 applicants should propose initiatives in at least two intercepts within the Sequential Intercept Model (e.g., law enforcement or prosecutor diversion, pretrial diversion, drug courts or other problem-solving courts, community-based supervision, corrections programs, reentry programs, etc.) The population of focus must primarily be justice involved individuals with a history of opioid misuse as well as individuals who have come in contact with law enforcement but have not been formally charged. Priority consideration will be given to applicants that:
      • Demonstrate that they have been disproportionally impacted by the illegal opioid epidemic as evidenced, in part, by high rates of primary treatment admissions for heroin and other opioids; high rates of overdose deaths from heroin and other opioids; and/or a lack of accessibility to treatment providers and facilities and to emergency medical services.
      • Include an action researcher that will assist in the identification of the problem, design of the solution, and evaluation of the proposed initiative.
    • Statewide Planning, Coordination, and Implementation Projects: Category 4 contains two subcategories of funding. Category 4a is designed to support the development of a coordinated plan between the State Administrative Agency (SAA) and the Single State Agency (SSA) to assist localities in engaging and retaining justice-involved individuals with opioid use disorders in treatment and recovery services; increase the use of diversion and/or alternatives to incarceration; and/or reduce the incidence of overdose death. Category 4b allows the applicant to provide financial support to localities or a region to implement the strategies contained 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 alternatives to incarceration; and/or supporting initiatives that reduce the incidence of overdose death. Priority consideration will be given to applicants that:
      • Demonstrate that the state, or regions within the state, have been disproportionately impacted by the illegal opioid epidemic as evidenced, in part, by high rates of primary treatment admissions for heroin and other opioids; high rates of overdose deaths from heroin and other opioids; and/or a lack of accessibility to treatment providers and facilities and to emergency medical services.
    • Harold Rogers Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) Implementation and Enhancement Projects: All applicants under this category must:
      • Agree to work closely with BJAs designated training and technical assistance (TTA) provider(s), which will be selected through a separate solicitation.
      • Budget for travel expenses (airfare, hotel, per diem, and group transportation) for two staff to attend a national meeting 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.
      • Any applicant that requests funds to implement information sharing with other state PDMPs must use technical solutions that are compliant with the National PMIX Architecture. Documentation regarding compliance to this requirement should be included as part of the application.
    • Data-driven Responses to Prescription Drug Misuse: PDMPs are charged with supporting the needs of a diverse group of stakeholders. To meet those needs, many have developed different methods of collecting information, ensuring data quality and integrity, producing data reports and analysis, and creating and enforcing access rules that define to whom and under what circumstances certain data can be made available, as well as developing differences in a wide array of other procedures, rules, regulations, capabilities, and practices. Groups should incorporate, to the extent possible, research and/or data analytics partners to assist with (a) data collection and analysis, (b) problem assessment, (c) strategy development, or (d) monitoring and evaluation performance. Priority consideration will be given to applicants that:
      • Include an action researcher that will assist in the identification of the problem, design of the solution, and evaluation of the proposed initiative.
