More opioid crisis funding
On the heels of passage of the Opioid Crisis Response Act, US Senator Lamar Alexander says Tennessee is in line to get $30.8 million to battle the opioid crisis, from an earlier appropriation. The grants announced Wednesday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services are part of the $4.7 billion included in the Fiscal Year 2018 Appropriations Bill that Congress passed in March to fight the opioid crisis, of which $1 billion was for grants to states. The grants include$18.5 million to expand access to medication-assisted treatment and fund programs to reduce opioid overdose deaths, $6.1 million for 23 Tennessee health centers, $800,000 to give rural communities more tools in their fight against opioid, and $5 million for Centers of Disease Control and Prevention programs that are aimed at preventing more people from becoming addicted to opioids.
