Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $312,953)

The Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program (COSSAP) was developed as part of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) legislation. COSSAP’s purpose is to provide financial and technical assistance to states, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments to develop, implement, or expand comprehensive efforts to identify, respond to, treat, and support those impacted by illicit opioids, stimulants, and other drugs of abuse.

The objective of Category 1 is to 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.

The Koyukuk Native Village Program will develop programs that promote and support the safety and well-being of Koyukuk tribal members and the residents of Koyukuk. Funds requested will address the impacts of the epidemic of alcohol substance abuse by reducing the likelihood of abuse and reentry into the tribal justice system through education and prevention activities. This project serves 387 tribal members and 8 nontribal members of Koyukuk.
