As Maryland responds to the recent news that opioid-related overdoses may outpace deaths from heroin for the first time in a decade, the University of Baltimore's Center for Drug Policy and Prevention is announcing its latest round of funding for innovative local solutions to the drug crisis.
The center is inviting sub-award applications for the Combating Overdose Through Community-level Intervention Initiative (COCLI), funded by the Office of National Drug Control Policy. Sub-recipients must focus on opioid-involved overdoses or overdoses involving stimulants, or poly-drug overdose reduction in the regions of the United States with the highest rates of fatal and non-fatal overdoses. CDPP and UBalt officials will begin accepting applications for sub-awards from the grant on Oct. 1, with applications due to UBalt no later than midnight on Nov. 1.
"We look forward to funding innovative and effective programs across the country, but especially in Baltimore, that are designed to reduce the loss of life from drug overdose," wrote Thomas H. Carr, executive director of the center, in a letter to The Baltimore Sun. "We believe the only way through this crisis is to work together."
