Meth Precursor Tracking Systems
BJA recently released a solicitation for a program to support states in their efforts to set up methamphetamine precursor tracking systems and to encourage and support planning for interconnectivity between state systems. BJA recently made an award of $500,000 to the Institute for Intergovernmental Research (IIR) to: 1) provide proactive, comprehensive, user-friendly training and technical assistance (TTA) services; 2) administer federal funds including pass-through or subcontract arrangements; 3) develop uniform protocols for the assessment and delivery of TTA, as well as tracking, evaluation, and follow-up; 4) use TTA strategies that include developing tools and resources for grantees, such as distance learning, peer-to-peer consultations, onsite technical assistance, and ongoing technical assistance by phone and e-mail; and 5) plan and host national meetings. More information on this program will soon be available.
