On behalf of BJA, the Institute for Intergovernmental Research (IIR) has released the Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program (COSSAP) Tribal Responses to Drug Overdoses solicitation.
This is part of a series of demonstration projects funded under COSSAP, which are designed to build capacity, foster cross-sector collaboration, and support innovation.
This solicitation is designed to assist federally recognized tribes in identifying resource deployment strategies to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with drug overdoses among individuals who come in contact with law enforcement or are involved in the criminal justice system. A key component of this initiative is to reduce drug overdose deaths by supporting adoption of the Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program to strengthen the ability of tribes to assess information gathered from public safety, public health, and behavioral health responses.
Applications are due by 5 p.m. ET, on May 14, 2020.
