Funding: Anti-Heroin Task Force Program

February 4, 2020 — The COPS Office 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, in states with high per capita rates of primary treatment admissions.

Approximately $35 million in funding is available for FY 2020 AHTF. Each grant is three years (36 months) in duration, and there is no local match. Each grant recipient may receive a maximum of $4 million.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • have primary authority over state seizures of heroin, fentanyl, carfentanil, and other opioids
  • have high per capita rates of primary treatment admissions for heroin, fentanyl, carfentanil, and other opioids
  • use the funds for investigative purposes to locate or investigate illicit activities related to the distribution of heroin, fentanyl, carfentanil, 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.
