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). The COCLI program targets U.S. communities with the highest rates of fatal and non-fatal overdoses.
Proposals must support and promote collaboration between public safety and public health agencies to ensure that overdose reduction efforts are robust and that community’s benefit from a comprehensive and coordinated response. Applicants must leverage evidence-based or promising practices approaches to implement or enhance new or on-going community-based programs that aim to reduce opioid-involved overdoses, overdoses involving stimulants, or polydrug overdose, and other harms associated with drug (mis)use. Some applicants (Tier 3) must also evaluate these community-based efforts to assess their efficacy in reducing overdose and other harms associated with drug (mis)use.
ALL proposals MUST support and promote collaboration between public safety and public health agencies. In addition, this Notice of Funding Availability seeks projects focused on the following priority areas:
- Activities that research and analyze a range of existing community-based efforts to address overdoses;
- Evidence-based and proven strategies designed to reduce overdose deaths that incorporate approaches that advance equity;
- Research activities that address opioid-involved overdose, overdose involving stimulants, or poly-drug overdose, and other harms associated with substance (mis)use;
- Research activities that deal with Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)
