U.S. Department of Justice: Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Site-based Program

Deadline: June 5, 2019

The Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Site-based Program (COAP) will provide financial and technical assistance to states, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments to plan, develop, and implement comprehensive efforts to identify, respond to, treat, and support those impacted by the opioid epidemic. The Harold Rogers Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) has been incorporated into COAP. The purpose of the Harold Rogers PDMP is to improve collaboration and strategic decision making among regulatory and law enforcement agencies and public health entities to address prescription drug and opioid abuse, save lives, and reduce crime.

All projects are expected to involve multiple agencies and partners.
  • Category 2: Statewide Implementation, Enhancement, and Evaluation Projects – The objective of Category 2 is to support states in their efforts to implement, enhance, or evaluate effective opioid-related efforts within the criminal justice system.
  • Category 3: Harold Rogers PDMP Implementation and Enhancement Projects – The objective of Category 3 is to strengthen the nation’s PDMP system and support enhancements to PDMPs that improve clinical decision making and prevent the abuse and diversion of controlled substances.
