High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas

The High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) program provides assistance to federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies operating in areas determined to be critical drug-trafficking regions of the United States. This grant program is administered by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). There are currently 28 HIDTAs, which include approximately 18 percent of all counties in the United States and 66 percent of the U.S. population. The purpose of the HIDTA program is to reduce drug trafficking and production in the United States by facilitating cooperation and enhancing intelligence sharing among federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies. HIDTAs also provide reliable law enforcement intelligence to law enforcement agencies to facilitate the design of effective enforcement strategies and operations and support coordinated law enforcement strategies that make the most of available resources to reduce the supply of illegal drugs in designated areas of the United States and in the Nation as a whole.
