  • Description:
    The United States is in the midst of an opioid overdose epidemic. On average, 115 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose, and more than 630,000 people have died from a drug overdose from 1999 to 2016. In 2016, the number of overdose deaths involving opioids (including prescription opioids and illegal opioids like heroin and illicitly manufactured fentanyl) was five times higher than in 1999.

    The FY 2018 Consolidated Appropriations Act and Accompanying Report includes an increase in funding appropriated to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to “advance the understanding of the opioid overdose epidemic and scale up prevention activities across all 50 States and Washington, D.C.” CDC will activate CDC-RFA-TP18-1802 Cooperative Agreement for Emergency Response: Public Health Crisis Response to award a portion of these funds to those affected by the opioid epidemic.

    This supplemental guidance supplements guidance provided in the CDC-RFA-TP18-1802: Cooperative Agreement for Emergency Response: Public Health Crisis Response notice of funding opportunity (NOFO). All requirements of that NOFO remain in effect unless otherwise amended herein. CDC may issue updated guidance in the future as needed.
