Funding: Anti-Methamphetamine Program

February 18, 2020 — 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 $13 million in funding is available for FY 2020 CAMP. Each grant is three years (36 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.
