ABSTRACT

Drug Control Grants: ONDCP Should Document Its Process for Identifying Duplication, Overlap, and Fragmentation, Report to Congressional Committees   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Highlights: "According to the most recent provisional data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a predicted record high of about 100,300 drug overdose deaths occurred during the 12-month period ending in April 2021. The federal drug control budget for fiscal year 2021 was nearly $36 billion and the federal government has enlisted more than a dozen agencies to address drug misuse and its effects. ONDCP [Office of National Drug Control Policy] is responsible for overseeing the implementation of the nation's national drug control policy and leading the national drug control efforts. The SUPPORT [Substance Use-Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery and Treatment for Patients and Communities] Act included a provision for GAO [Government Accountability Office] to examine ONDCP's tracking of federally funded drug control grants. This report addresses the extent to which ONDCP (1) took steps to provide the public with information on federal drug control grants, (2) took steps to identify barriers when applying for drug control grants, and (3) facilitated federal efforts to identify DOF [duplication, overlap, and fragmentation] in drug control grants."
