CDC Awards New Research Grants
Beginning October 1, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Injury Center is providing funds through the Research Grants for the Primary or Secondary Prevention of Opioid Overdose. More than $8.5 million per year over a 3-year project period will be awarded to support 12 grants (up to $750k per year per project). According to the CDC, the funding supports research that expands and advances understanding about what works to prevent opioid overdose and will improve the ability of state and local health departments to implement and improve interventions.
