Explanation

BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health has been awarded a grant from the Ohio Department of Health for the Drug Overdose Prevention Grant for the Addiction Services Division. This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $80,000.00 in grant money for the period of September 1, 2020 through August 31, 2021.

The purpose of this funding is to implement comprehensive sustainable interventions at the local level to prevent drug overuse, misuse, abuse, and overdose. The goal is to support local communities based on the needs identified within their community by providing resources for community coalitions and strategic plans, overdose fatality review boards, immediate community response plans and implementation of comprehensive sustainable systems in various settings to screen, identify and link at-risk populations with services. We have used this grant to formalize the Columbus & Franklin County Addiction Plan, with grant continuation focusing on coalition evaluation, as well as developing and implementing proposed changes for improvements on outcomes.

This ordinance is submitted as emergency so a delay in services does not occur due to the start date September 1, 2020.

FISCAL IMPACT: The Drug Overdose Prevention Grant 2021 is fully funded ($80,000.00) by the Ohio Department of Health and does not require a City match.
