The COPS Anti-Methamphetamine Program (CAMP) is a competitive grant solicitation, open to state law enforcement agencies with multijurisdictional reach and interdisciplinary team (e.g. task force) structures, in states with high seizures of precursor chemicals, finished methamphetamine, laboratories, and laboratory dump seizures.

Approximately $8 million in funding is available for FY 2019 CAMP. Each grant is two years (24 months) in duration, and there is no local match.

Applicants must request at least $1 million, and  recipients may receive a maximum of $2 million.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Have primary authority over state seizures of methamphetamine
  • Have high seizures of precursor chemicals, finished methamphetamine, laboratories, and laboratory dump seizures
  • Use the funds for investigative purposes to locate or investigate illicit activities related to the manufacture and distribution of methamphetamine (including precursor diversion, laboratories, or methamphetamine traffickers)
  • Submit a budget request of at least $1 million.

CAMP may not be used to fund treatment programs or to prosecute methamphetamine-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. Please see the CAMP Application Guide for more details.
