BJA is seeking applications to respond to illicit substance use and misuse to reduce overdose deaths, promote public safety, and support access to treatment and recovery services in the criminal justice system, and strongly encourages tribal communities to consider applying under Category 1c.

The Bureau of Justice Assistance’s (BJA)Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program(COSSAP)—which is transitioning in the coming months to the Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Use Program (COSSUP)—supports tribal governments, states, and units of local government to plan, develop, implement, or expand comprehensive programs in response to the overdose crisis and the impacts of use and misuse of opioids, stimulants, or other substances. COSSAP/COSSUP funding provides necessary resources that allow communities to respond to illicit substance use and misuse to reduce overdose deaths, promote public safety, and support access to prevention, harm reduction, treatment, and recovery services in the community and justice system. The program also promotes cross-system planning and coordination to deliver a broad range of evidence-based, culturally relevant interventions.
