Idaho Falls, ID – Eastern Idaho Public Health is excited to announce the opportunity to provide subgrants to organizations working to combat the opioid crisis in Eastern Idaho. Eastern Idaho Public Health’s vision focuses on healthy people in healthy communities with a mission to prevent disease, disability and premature death, promote healthy lifestyles; and protect and promote the health and quality of our environment.

Opioid settlements from drugmakers and major pharmaceutical distributors will provide funding for treatment, recovery, prevention, and harm reduction in Idaho.

Strategies eligible for subgrant funding must align with the approved opioid abatement strategies found on the Office of the Attorney General for the State of Idaho’s website.

The opioid settlement subgrant application can be found on Eastern Idaho Public Health’s website.

Eastern Idaho Public Health aims to award $70,000 in subgrants to organizations working to combat the opioid crisis in the following Idaho counties: Bonneville, Clark, Custer, Fremont, Jefferson, Lemhi, Madison, and Teton. Although the application is open all organizations within Region 7 working to combat the opioid crisis, priority will be given to non-profit organizations, local governments, first responders, schools, and healthcare providers.
