In 2017, the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area launched a free, user-friendly, mobile-capable tool known as the Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP) to track the location of suspected fatal and nonfatal overdoses and the administration of naloxone by first responders. ODMAP provides near real-time suspected overdose data across jurisdictions to support efforts to mobilize an immediate response to a sudden increase or spike in overdose events.
The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) will host an informational webinar on May 17, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. ET to provide information for state, local, and tribal jurisdictions that are interested in implementing a Swift, Certain, and Fair Supervision Program Model through the BJA solicitation titled, “FY 2019 Innovative Responses to Behavior in the Community: Swift, Certain, and Fair Supervision.”

The Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) was signed into law on July 22, 2016. As part of CARA, the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program solicitation offers states, local governments, and Indian tribes six funding categories to expand outreach, treatment, and recovery efforts to individuals impacted by the opioid epidemic. In only its third year, this solicitation offers immense opportunities for tribes to design and enhance their own systems pursuant to community needs.
