Description: CDC announces a supplemental funding opportunity for national, partner organizations that were previously awarded under the CDC-RFA-OT18-1804 NOFO: Technical Assistance for Response to Public Health or Healthcare Crises.” The purpose of this supplemental funding opportunity is to support activities associated with the national response to the opioid overdose epidemic. Such activities include staffing, procurement, and direct technical assistance. Funds may be directed to efforts that are within the scope of CDC-RFA-OT18-1804: Technical Assistance for Response to Public Health or Healthcare Crises. The United States is experiencing an opioid overdose epidemic. Opioids were involved in 42,249 overdose deaths in 2016 (66.4% of all drug overdose deaths), having increased by more than five times since 1999. In response to the epidemic, the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services has declared the opioid crisis a nationwide public health emergency under Section 319 of the Public Health Service Act. The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control’s Division of Unintentional Injury Prevention has funded national partner organizations through CDC-RFA-OT18-1804 to provide surge support to states as they work to respond to the opioid overdose epidemic and prevent future overdose deaths. These partners are meeting critical needs that states cannot fulfill with local expertise or complete quickly enough to be effective through their own hiring and procurement processes.This funding is intended to enhance activities associated with the national response to the opioid overdose epidemic. Such activities include staffing, procurement, and direct technical assistance to select jurisdictions. Award recipients will function as a rapid provider of information and/or resources, as well as a coordinator of the project management components involved. As a result, the award recipeients must demonstrate experience providing administration, oversight, and coordination for CDC-funded projects. Additionally, award recipients will be expected to work closely with state and local jurisdictions and other stakeholders working to respond to the opioid overdose epidemic and prevent future overdose deaths.
