Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories nonprofit and for-profit organizations, government agencies, Tribes, and IHEs to address opioid use among youth and related community safety issues. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to submitting a proposal. Through this program, OJJDP will support states and communities to develop coordinated responses to opioid use-related challenges that impact youth and community safety. Funding under this program may be used to support programs and services to youth and families impacted by both opioids and other substance use disorders.

The OJJDP FY 2022 Opioid Affected Youth Initiative will fund sites to develop coordinated intervention and prevention responses that identify and address challenges resulting from opioid use and misuse that are impacting youth and community safety. Proposed activities must demonstrate a clear nexus between youth and the effects of opioids. Sites will work with OJJDP and a training and technical assistance provider to develop strategies and programs to be implemented that address specific challenges resulting from opioid use and misuse.

The goal of the Opioid Affected Youth Initiative is to provide programs and services to youth and families impacted by both opioid use and other substance use disorders.

Objectives include implementing prevention, intervention, and treatment programs that address the needs of pregnant and postpartum women, parents/primary caregivers, and youth; reducing foster care system involvement; implementing integrated services for parents and children that support families through treatment and recovery; and supporting the juvenile and criminal justice systems to address the needs of children and youth impacted by opioids and other substances.

Deliverables include the implementation of prevention, intervention, diversion,  treatment, and recovery programs and strategies that respond to both opioid and substance use disorders and ensure sustainable outcomes for youth and families.

Sites will work in partnership with representatives from law enforcement, education, mental health service providers, child welfare agencies, community health agencies, and community-based organizations that address substance use.

To advance Executive Order 13929 Safe Policing for Safe Communities, the Attorney General determined that all state, local, and university or college law enforcement agencies must be certified by an approved independent credentialing body, or have started the certification process, to be eligible for FY 2022 DOJ discretionary grant funding. To become certified, the law enforcement agency must meet two mandatory conditions: (1) the agency’s use-of-force policies adhere to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and (2) the agency’s use-of-force policies prohibit chokeholds except in situations where use of deadly force is allowed by law. The certification requirement also applies to law enforcement agencies receiving DOJ discretionary grant funding through a subaward. For detailed information on this certification requirement, please visit https://cops.usdoj.gov/SafePolicingEO to access the Standards for Certification on Safe Policing for Safe Communities, the Implementation Fact Sheet, and the List of Designated Independent Credentialing Bodies.

Eligible applicants who propose to provide direct services must not include the provision of services to youth age 18 or older unless such youth entered the funded program as a participant prior to reaching the age of 18 in which case the youth may remain until s/he has completed the program. Proposed activities must demonstrate a clear nexus between youth and the effects of opioids.All recipients and subrecipients (including any for-profit organization) must forgo any profit or management fee.
