OJJDP Opioid Affected Youth Initiative
Applications due: May 7, 2019
Sites will be funded to develop a data-driven coordinated response to identify and address challenges resulting from opioid abuse that are impacting youth and community safety. Sites will work with OJJDP and a technical assistance provider to develop data collection tools that will inform strategies and programs to be implemented by the sites to address specific challenges resulting from the opioid epidemic. Data-driven strategies and programs will (1) develop a multidisciplinary task force with working groups to identify specific areas of concern; (2) collect and interpret data that will assist the task force in developing strategies and programming that will be used to better coordinate response efforts and resources; and (3) implement services that will address public safety concerns, intervention, prevention, and diversion services for children, youth, and families directly impacted by opioid abuse.
