Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program (COAP) Solicitation

Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program (COAP) Solicitation

Applications due June 7, 2018

The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) developed the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Site-based Program (COAP) in response to the CARA legislation.  COAP’s purpose is to provide financial and technical assistance to states, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments to plan, develop, and implement comprehensive efforts to identify, respond to, treat, and support those impacted by the opioid epidemic.  Since 2017, the Harold Rogers Prescription Drug Monitoring Program has been incorporated into COAP, emphasizing the important role that PDMPs play in supporting safe prescribing, identifying patients who may be misusing prescription opioids or other prescription drugs, and/or patients who may be at risk for overdose.  The FY 2018 COAP solicitation also includes a category of funding supported by a partnership with the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC).  Through this funding, applicants can incorporate a victim service and child welfare components into first responder and behavioral health and/or public health partnerships.

There are six grant categories:

  • Category 1:  First Responder Partnerships—Funding amount:  $500,000—$800,000
  • Category 2: Technology-Assisted Treatment Projects—Funding amount: $1,000,000
  • Category 3:  System-Level Diversion Projects—Funding amount: $900,000
  • Category 4:  Statewide Planning, Coordination, and Implementation Projects—Funding amount: $100,000—$1,300,000
  • Category 5:  Harold Rogers Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) Implementation and Enhancement Projects—Funding amount:  $750,000
  • Category 6:  Public Safety, Behavioral Health, and Public Health Information Sharing Partnerships—Funding amount: $1,000,000—$1,500,000
