New York City’s RxStat Technical Assistance Manual is now available for download at www.pdmpassist.org/pdf/RxStat.pdf. RxStat is a model for advancing a shared understanding of the patterns and characteristics of problem drug use—including prescription opioid misuse—in a local jurisdiction. The technical assistance manual offers practical suggestions for replicating RxStat in another jurisdictions and draws upon lessons learned in the first two years. The manual also provides detailed information on each of the datasets used in the New York City initiative, including guidance for accessing, preparing, and analyzing similar datasets available in other jurisdictions.

Funding Options for Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs
To help Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) identify funding options which may assist them in remaining operational and fulfill their purpose in a time of shrinking state budgets, BJA's PDMP Training and Technical Assistance Center, operated by Brandeis University, has developed a guide to inform PDMP administrators, policymakers, legislative representatives, and other interested stakeholders about funding mechanisms currently in use across the country. The guide also suggests other funding possibilities a PDMP may wish to consider to ensure sustainability and program enhancement.

Eligibility
Implementation and Enhancement Grants (Category 1): Applicants are limited to state governments that have a pending or enacted enabling statute or regulation requiring the submission of controlled substance prescription data to an authorized state agency.

Tribal Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Data Sharing Grants (Category 2): Applicants are limited to federally recognized tribal governments as defined under the Indian Self Determination Act, 25 U.S.C. 450b(e).

Data-Driven Multi-Disciplinary Approaches to Reducing Rx Abuse Grants (Category 3): Applicants are limited to state agencies (health departments, law enforcement authorities, etc.) and units of county government located in states with existing and operational prescription drug monitoring programs.

BJA may elect to make awards for applications submitted under this solicitation in future fiscal years, dependent on the merit of the applications and on the availability of appropriations.
