Tracking Federal Funding to Fight America’s Opioid Epidemic

 In COVID-19, Local

Join us on September 30 as the Bipartisan Policy Center releas­es a new report which tracks all fed­er­al fund­ing dis­trib­uted to states in fiscal year 2019 to fight the opioid epi­dem­ic. This report builds on BPC’s FY2018 and 2017 study.  


Provisional data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show an increase in over­all drug over­dose deaths in 2019. States and coun­ties also report that over­dose deaths from opi­oids are rising in 2020 and the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic is exac­er­bat­ing the prob­lem, espe­cial­ly in com­mu­ni­ties of color.   

BPC’s event will include a panel of experts and mem­bers of Congress who will dis­cuss how the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment can better part­ner with states and local­i­ties to tackle America’s opioid epi­dem­ic and the impact of COVID-19 on this urgent chal­lenge.
