Explanation

BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health has been awarded the 2020 Ohio State Opioid Response (SOR) Grant from the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OMHAS) through the Alcohol, Drug And Mental Health (ADAMH) Board of Franklin County, for the Alcohol and Drug Services (ADS) Division. This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $863,232.19 in grant money for the period of September 30, 2019 through September 29, 2020.

The purpose of this funding is to build a community system of care (prevention, early intervention, treatment, and recovery supports) that emphasizes service integration between physical health, emergency health care, behavioral health care, criminal justice, and child welfare. The population of focus is African American, Hispanic/Latino American, and other minority communities’ adolescents and adults with a primary or secondary diagnosis of opioid use disorder or those with a documented history of opioid related overdose.
This ordinance is submitted as emergency so a delay in services does not occur due to the start date September 30, 2019.

FISCAL IMPACT: The SOR Grant is fully funded by OMHAS through the ADAMH Board of Franklin County and does not require a City match.
