Combating Overdose Through Community-level Intervention
The University of Baltimore’s Center for Drug Policy and Prevention (CDPP) invites sub-award applications for the Combating Overdose Through Community-level Intervention Initiative (COCLI) Initiative, funded by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP, CFDA=95.007).
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. Also, they must:
- Support and promote collaboration between public safety and public health agencies to ensure that overdose reduction efforts are aligned and that communities benefit from a comprehensive and coordinated response.
- Use evidence-based or promising approaches to implement or enhance new or on-going community-based programs that aim to reduce other drug overdoses.
- Once implemented, evaluate these community-based efforts to assess their efficacy in reducing overdoses and other harms associated with (mis)use.
These funds will help identify innovative solutions that move beyond traditional health and law enforcement policies. UBalt’s center, housed in the College of Public Affairs, will act as the authority for all administrative and financial aspects of the grant. The center encourages local government agencies, public and private universities, advocacy organizations and nonprofits nationwide to apply for funding.
CDPP and UBalt officials will begin accepting applications for subawards from the grant on October 1, 2021. Applications are due to UBalt no later than midnight Eastern Standard Time, Nov. 1, 2021. Organizations that wish to apply for funding for their opioid-related intervention effort may do so by following the instructions provided in the application guidelines found below.
