This solicitation is being announced as an open competition targeted at state law enforcement agencies authorized by law or by a state agency to engage in or to supervise anti-heroin and other opioid investigative activities. Funding is limited and this solicitation is expected to be very competitive. Strong applications should demonstrate a multijurisdictional reach and participation in interdisciplinary team structures (i.e., task forces). Strong applications should also include multi-year state level primary treatment admissions data for heroin and other opioids to support their proposal. The goals for this program are to increase efforts to investigate illicit activities related to the distribution of heroin or unlawful distribution of prescriptive opioids, or unlawful heroin and prescription opioid traffickers through statewide collaboration. The COPS Office reserves the right to limit awards to one per state at the time of award announcement.
