CDC OVERDOSE DATA TO ACTION GRANT
HPCNEF is partnering with the Florida Department of Health in Duval County (DOH-Duval) on a three-year grant from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The purpose of the grant is twofold: to use data to better understand the opioid epidemic that is killing hundreds of Jacksonville residents each year, and to put that data into action for prevention.
The primary role of HPCNEF is to manage the financial and grant administration aspects, including the management of subcontracts for services from community-based organizations. The stakeholder workgroup is continuing to meet to further explore the gaps revealed by local data and identify potential projects to fund through a request for proposals expected later this year.
