This solicitation, issued by the Institute for Intergovernmental Research (IIR) and supported by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), seeks to support state, local, and tribal governments in purchasing drug take-back and disposal equipment, enabling law enforcement agencies, first responders, and/or citizens to destroy and/or return unused medicine. This program complements existing federal take-back efforts, such as National Take Back Day, and expands this important component in a community’s fight against substance abuse into a year-round opportunity.
The Comprehensive Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Program will fund selected sites for the sole purpose of purchasing storage and disposal equipment (including traditional boxes, disposal pouches, and other innovative approaches) for drug take-back projects. State, local, and tribal governments selected through the program will be expected to coordinate their activities with multidisciplinary teams drawn from their communities in order to maximize the awareness and effectiveness of their projects.
Deadline: November 25, 2020
