Grant Opportunity: Anti-Methamphetamine Program

The U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Office has announced the 2018 COPS Anti-Methamphetamine Program (CAMP), a competitive grant program that advances public safety by providing funds directly to state law enforcement agencies to investigate illicit activities related to the manufacture and distribution of methamphetamine.

 

Approximately $8 million in funding is available for FY 2018 CAMP. Each grant is a maximum of $2 million, is two years in duration, and there is no local match. CAMP funds must be used to investigate illicit activities related to the manufacture and distribution of methamphetamine (including precursor diversion, laboratories, or methamphetamine traffickers).

Applications are due by June 27, 2018 at 7:59 PM EDT.
