The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) has applied for an $11.8 million federal grant to support Wisconsin’s response to the opioid crisis. The funding is through the nearly $1 billion State Opioid Response grant program administered by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and is available to all states and U.S. territories.

“This funding will boost our ongoing efforts to provide hope, health, and healing to those who need it the most,” said DHS Director of Opioid Initiatives Paul Krupski. “We are saving lives, but there are more people to reach. This additional funding will help us sustain, enhance, and expand critical prevention, treatment, and recovery programs. We look forward to working with our state, tribal, and local partners to meet the needs of those struggling with opioid addiction.”
