DOJ Grants Seek to Find Ways to Prevent Opioid Abuse in Youth

Programs funded by the grant will use data to show successes and reveal evidence-based approaches that address different types of opioid abuse in youth.

A new discretionary grant was recently announced by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs to identify ways to prevent opioid abuse in youth and improve community safety.

Cities and towns nationwide are eligible to apply for the nearly $7 million in grant funds available for the Opioid Affected Youth Initiative, with a maximum grant request of $1 million.
