The OOCC directly allocates approximately $10 million in crisis funding each year. For Fiscal Year 2020, approximately $4 million of these crisis funds will be allocated as block grants to opioid intervention teams (OITs) in Maryland’s 24 jurisdictions. The balance of the OOCC’s crisis fund budget will be used to provide grants to other state agencies, local governments, and private community-based programs, and to support the OOCC’s operating budget.
The next round of OOCC grants will be distributed for FY2021. Watch this page for an announcement of the FY2021 Call for Proposals. The announcement will occur in the first half of calendar year 2020.
