On behalf of the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the Institute for Intergovernmental Research is releasing the Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP) Statewide Expansion and Response Grant solicitation. BJA is sponsoring this initiative in coordination with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This is part of a series of demonstration projects funded under the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program. These demonstration projects are designed to build capacity, foster cross-sector collaboration, and support innovation. Under this solicitation, up to 6 states will be selected for grant awards up to $700,000, each for a 24-month period.
The ODMAP Statewide Expansion and Response Grant is designed to support statewide adoption of ODMAP as well as the development of highly coordinated public safety, behavioral health, and public health responses to the data, focusing on “hot spots” and trends of concern. It is anticipated that the majority of grant funding will be used to support cross-sector partnerships that are structured in such a way that local communities can make meaningful use of the data collected through ODMAP to deploy interventions targeting specific geographic areas or high-risk individuals.
