National HIDTA Program
The National High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) program, created by Congress in 1988, is administered by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). There are currently 33 region-focused HIDTAs across the 50 states, as well as in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the District of Columbia.
The HIDTA program helps improve the effectiveness and efficiency of drug control efforts by facilitating cooperation among drug control organizations through resource and information sharing, collocation, and implementing joint initiatives. HIDTA funds help federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement organizations invest in infrastructure and joint initiatives to confront drug trafficking organizations.
