Thirteen innovative opioid-intervention programs spread across nine states will receive grants of up to $135,000 in funding from the University of Baltimore's Center for Drug Policy and Enforcement (CDPE) to undertake research activities, and support and promote law enforcement and public health partnerships aimed at reducing overdose and other harms caused by opioid use and abuse. The Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provided $2 million to fund this effort. The funding will help identify innovative solutions that move beyond traditional health and law enforcement policies. CDPE is serving as the authority for all administrative and financial aspects of the grant.
The Office of Sponsored Research is the office of record for all grants and contracts between external sponsors of academic projects and University faculty and staff.
Proposals submitted to these agencies must be reviewed by the office to assure compliance with University policy and, in some cases, policies of the federal government. The office also reviews budgets to verify that all appropriate charges are included in the cost calculations.
