Feds to dish out more money to fight opioid abuse
from By Scott E. Rupp
Federal health officials are preparing to allocate nearly $1 billion to support states in their efforts to combat the opioid epidemic. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) said it is accepting applications from states and territories to secure a portion of an allotted $930 million in state opioid response grants for opioid prevention and treatment initiatives. SAMHSA will award up to 59 grants. States and the District of Columbia can receive a minimum of $4 million.
