WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, the Office of National Drug Policy (ONDCP), in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), announced $3 million in funding through the Combating Overdose Through Community-Level Intervention (COCLI) initiative to support local governments, public and private universities, advocacy organizations, and nonprofits working to prevent drug overdoses in communities across the country.

“The Biden-Harris Administration is working to advance evidence-based public health and public safety measures to save lives,” said Dr. Gupta. “This funding will build on the actions we have taken this year by ensuring communities have additional resources to prevent overdoses and connect more people to treatment, prevention, harm reduction, and recovery support services.”

The recipient of the 2021 COCLI cooperative agreement is the University of Baltimore’s Center for Drug Policy and Prevention, which provides opportunities for communities to receive COCLI funding through competitive grants and supports evidence-based overdose prevention efforts.
