The ODMAP Statewide Expansion and Response Grant is designed to support statewide adoption of ODMAP as well as support the development of highly coordinated public safety, behavioral health, and public health responses to the data, focusing on œhot spots and trends of concern.
For purposes of this solicitation, œstatewide adoption is defined as implementing an information technology solution that pulls de-identified, geocoded data from an existing data source (e.g., statewide EMS database, statewide law enforcement RMS) that contains both fatal and nonfatal overdoses identified by first responders for at least 80 percent of the counties in the state. Competitive applications will include their most populated counties in the proposed project. For many states and territories, this is most efficiently accomplished by feeding data from the state-level EMS data collection system through an API, but applicants are welcome to offer a solution that makes sense in the context of the current state/territory data environment.
States, territories, regions, or communities with existing data tracking systems that capture fatal and nonfatal overdose data can apply to serve as demonstration sites by agreeing to make existing data available through ODMAP. Applicants that have partially or fully implemented ODMAP are encouraged to apply. Applicants proposing implementations that make use of an API to feed existing data will be prioritized in the review process. If using an API, transmission delays from the local agency to the state database may occur. Applicants with time delays of 14 days or less from overdose will be prioritized.
Applicants must commit to implementing the following activities:
- Adopt ODMAP statewide. For purposes of this solicitation, statewide adoption is defined as capturing fatal and nonfatal overdoses identified by first responders for at least 80 percent of the counties in the state in ODMAP. The most competitive applicants will demonstrate their capacity to achieve statewide adoption within 6 months of the grant award.
- Establish public safety, public health, and behavioral health partnerships in a minimum of five communities located in the state. The primary goal of this solicitation is to support cross-sector partnerships that are structured in such a way that local communities can make meaningful use of the data collected through ODMAP to deploy interventions targeting specific geographic areas or high-risk individuals. BJA and the CDC are explicitly looking for applicants that propose to actively use the data.
- Support the selected local communities in identifying ways to use the data collected through ODMAP to deploy public health, behavioral health, and public safety interventions to address specific geographic areas or high-risk individuals. As noted previously, the primary goal of this solicitation is to support cross-sector partnerships that are structured in such a way that local communities can make meaningful use of the data collected through ODMAP to deploy interventions targeting specific geographic areas or high-risk individuals.
Indirect costs may be charged to an award only if: a.) The recipient has a current (unexpired), federally approved indirect cost rate; or b.) The recipient is eligible to use, and elects to use, the œde minimis indirect cost rate described in the Part 200 Uniform Requirements, as set out at 2 CFR 200.414(f).
