Democrats Ask Drug Policy Office to Do More to Combat Opioid Epidemic
Twenty Democratic senators are asking the Office of National Drug Control Policy to do more to combat the opioid epidemic, according to the Associated Press.
The Indian Health Service has $600,000 available for grants to programs working to prevent methamphetamine use and suicide among American Indian and Native American youth.
Three two-year awards of $100,000 per year will be made under the program. Funds must be used to expand community-level access to effective methamphetamine and suicide-prevention programs through tribal, youth residential, transitional/discharge, and aftercare services.
Tribes, tribal organizations, tribal consortia, and nonprofit urban Native American programs may apply.
Application deadline is July 31. For more details, see the full grant announcement online.
