Virginia localities can access grant money to combat the opioid epidemic
Last year, Virginia localities began receiving distributions from settlements in litigation resulting from the opioid epidemic. The Virginia Opioid Abatement Authority (OAA) will be managing and distributing some of these funds via a grant process to support localities in developing programs to address the opioid epidemic. The OAA will be holding a virtual webinar on February 1 from 10 AM - 12 PM to provide an overview of the application process, including a review of eligibility requirements, types of funds available and the selection method. In addition, there will be two OAA grant process Q&A sessions on March 8 from 2-3PM and April 19 from 11 AM - 12 PM.
