The U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) is seeking applications that develop comprehensive strategies to respond to the opioid epidemic. This program furthers the Department’s mission by providing resources to state, local, tribal, and territorial efforts to reduce violent crime and drug addiction and enhance public safety, while supporting victims of the epidemic. Through this solicitation, BJA intends to select five training and technical assistance (TTA) providers to support the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program. Providers will deliver TTA to tribal, state and local criminal justice and substance addiction treatment agencies nationwide, prescription drug monitoring programs, and their partner agencies in sites selected through the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Site-based Program solicitation, and to communities nationwide impacted by the opioid epidemic.

The solicitation provides further details about the program. Applications are due by May 28.
