Opioid funding for CHCC

Sep 9, 2019

The Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation will receive $1,015,000 as part of a new grant award to advance the understanding of the opioid overdose epidemic and to scale-up prevention and response activities. The three-year cooperative agreement will support CHCC in obtaining high-quality, more comprehensive, and timelier data on overdose morbidity and mortality – and use those data to inform prevention and response efforts. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration also announced the second year-round of funding for the State Opioid Response Grants. The Commonwealth will receive $250,000 to support prevention, treatment, and recovery services.
