Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Site-Based Program
The Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Site-Based Program (Short Title: COSSAP) provides grants to develop, implement, and/or expand comprehensive programs in response to illicit opioids, stimulants, or other substances of abuse. The program provides resources to support state, local, tribal, and territorial efforts to reduce violent crime and drug abuse and enhance public safety while supporting victims.
Rural and tribal applicants should apply under Subcategory 1c for projects in rural areas, small counties, and tribal areas with a population of fewer than 100,000 or a federally recognized tribe.
Funds may be used for:
- Pre-booking or post-booking treatment alternative-to-incarceration programs that serve individuals at high risk for overdose or substance abuse
- Law enforcement and other first responder diversion programs
- Education and prevention programs to connect law enforcement agencies with K-12 students
- Embedding social services with law enforcement in order to rapidly respond to drug overdoses where children are impacted
- Comprehensive, real-time, regional information collection, analysis, and dissemination
- Naloxone for law enforcement and other first responders
- Identifiable and accessible take-back programs for unused controlled substances found in the home and used by hospitals and long-term care facilities
- Evidence-based treatment, as well as recovery support services including transitional or recovery housing and peer recovery support services
- Court-based intervention programs or family court programming to prioritize and expedite treatment and recovery services to individuals at high risk for overdose
Priority will be given to projects in areas that demonstrate:
- A high rate of primary treatment admissions for heroin, opioids, and stimulants
- High rates of overdose deaths
- A lack of accessibility to treatment providers and facilities and to emergency medical services
Eligible applicants under the rural subcategory include counties with a population of fewer than 100,000 and federally recognized tribal governments.
