Project DAWN Registration

A person signing a form.

Project DAWN registration has transitioned to an online process that requires an OH|ID account to access the application.

Click the “download” button to access the Project DAWN Portal User Guide. This document contains instructions on how to apply via OH|ID and important information on program requirements.


  • Your organization must have an established protocol that authorizes the staff or volunteers to personally furnish (distribute) naloxone prior to registration. Protocols can be signed by a clinical nurse specialist, certified nurse-midwife, physician, physician assistant, or certified nurse practitioner. You will be required to submit proof of this protocol. Failure to do so will result in your application not being approved. 

You can register as a Project DAWN program if:

  • Your organization will distribute take-home naloxone kits free-of-charge.
  • You are a local health department that would like to equip law enforcement and first responders with naloxone for in-field use.

You should not register as a Project DAWN program if:

  • You are an individual and would like naloxone for personal use.
  • You only desire to keep one or more doses of naloxone on the premises of your establishment to administer in case a suspected overdose occurs.
  • Your organization does not intend to distribute naloxone on a consistent basis. For example, your plans are to distribute a small amount of naloxone at community events a few times a year. In this case, it is best to partner with an existing local Project DAWN program.
  • Your program does not have an established protocol that authorizes personnel to personally furnish naloxone.

Please refer to the Project DAWN User Guide for additional requirements.

Project DAWN resources are available for organizations working to prevent opioid overdose and promote harm reduction.
