Drug Abuse Response Team Grants Awarded

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost has expanded a program that helps address drug addictions, overdoses and deaths within Ohio communities. The Drug Abuse Response Team Grant Program reimburses some of the personnel and other costs for local law enforcement or government agency teams that deploy in response to overdoses and other effects of the opioid epidemic.
 
In August 2019 new awards totaling $1.3 million were sent to 30 local agencies across Ohio that operate these quick-response teams. The grants, administered by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, range from $8,000 to $62,000 per agency. Many of the recipient drug abuse response teams also received previous grants from this program, which began in 2017. This interactive map shows the locations of the law enforcement and other agencies that have received past or current grants, and the amounts awarded.
