COPS Anti-Heroin Task Force (AHTF) Program
The COPS Anti-Heroin Task Force (AHTF) Program is a competitive grant solicitation, open to state law enforcement agencies with multijurisdictional reach and interdisciplinary team (e.g. task force) structures.
Approximately $32 million in funding is available for FY 2018 AHTF. Each grant is two years (24 months) in duration, and there is no local match. Each grant recipient may receive a maximum of $3 million.
To be eligible, applicants must:
- have primary authority over state seizures of heroin and other opioids
- have high per capita levels of primary treatment admissions for both heroin and other opioids
- use the funds for investigative purposes to locate or investigate illicit activities related to the distribution of heroin or the unlawful distribution of prescription opioids
AHTF may not be used to fund treatment programs or to prosecute heroin and other opioids-related activities.
All awards are subject to the availability of appropriated funds and any modifications or additional requirements that may be imposed by law.
Please Note: To apply for funding, applicants must have a DUNS number (DUNS numbers are required of all agencies requesting federal funding) and have an active registration with the System for Award Management (SAM) database. SAM replaces the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) database as the repository for standard information about federal financial assistance applicants, recipients, and subrecipients. Applicants must update or renew their SAM registration annually to maintain an active status.
**ALERT: You must submit a notarized letter appointing the authorized Entity Administrator before your registration will be activated. This requirement now applies to both new and existing entities. (www.grants.gov)
