Integrated Naloxone Access and Infrastructure Grant
People putting together a puzzle.

IN Grant Overview

In partnership with the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, the Ohio Department of Health was allocated funds from the federal State Opioid Response (SOR) Grant to develop the Integrated Naloxone Access and Infrastructure (IN) Grant. 

The goals of this grant are to: 

  1. Build evidence-based, sustainable infrastructure that will increase access to naloxone among Ohio residents (particularly Ohioans who are at high risk of overdose or are likely to be in a position to respond to an overdose).
  2. Integrate naloxone access into other services reaching the same population.
  3. Provide naloxone kits to Ohio residents.
  4. Expand culturally appropriate outreach to populations that use non-opioid illicit drugs, such as cocaine and methamphetamine, that may be contaminated with opioids (including racial and ethnic minority populations and gender and sexual minority populations). 

During the first grant period (July 1, 2019-Sept. 28, 2020), 37 local subrecipients proposed 118 strategies to distribute naloxone to target populations. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, subrecipients were successful in implementing most of these strategies or finding alternative ways to provide services. Several naloxone mail-order programs were launched, programs worked with correctional facilities to ensure people received naloxone upon release, and programs collaborated to improve community outreach, among other strategies. IN Grant subrecipients distributed 73,194 naloxone kits, trained 48,531 people, and reported 14,714 overdose reversals over this grant period.  

The second grant period is underway (Sept. 29, 2020-Aug. 31, 2022), with 42 subrecipients working on implementing 127 naloxone distribution strategies. Examples include EMS leave-behind programs, quick response team (QRT) distribution, street outreach, integrating naloxone into treatment and recovery services, syringe service programs, hospital settings, and correctional and court systems.
