With this solicitation, OJJDP seeks to support the efforts of communities to develop prevention and intervention responses that identify, respond to, treat, and support children, youth, and families impacted by opioid use and other substance use disorders. OJJDP asks applicants to integrate youth and family partnership strategies into projects and partner with law enforcement, education, mental health service providers, child welfare agencies, community health agencies, and community-based organizations that address the needs of individuals and families experiencing substance use. OJP strongly encourages the use of data and evidence in program development for criminal justice, juvenile justice, and crime victim services.
