Donnelly Welcomes $10.9 Million Federal Grant to Combat Opioid Epidemic

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly today welcomed a $10.9 million federal grant to Indiana aimed at combatting the opioid epidemic. The grant comes in the second round of funding from the bipartisan 21st Century Cures Act, which Donnelly pushed for and helped pass into law. Last year, Indiana also received $10.9 million in grant funding from this legislation. The Department of Health and Human Services grant will be administered by the State of Indiana, which will make the determinations on funding for specific programs. 

Donnelly said, “This grant funding is another infusion of much-needed resources to help fund prevention, treatment, and recovery efforts in Indiana as we attack the opioid epidemic from every angle. I’m proud to have pushed for and helped pass the bipartisan 21st Century Cures Act that facilitated this grant and will continue fighting for our state to have the resources we need to address this public health crisis.” 

Over the last several years, Donnelly has led the fight in the Senate for increased federal resources to combat the opioid epidemic through prevention, treatment, and recovery services:
