Government introduces new fund to combat overdose crisis

The government has released more funding in an attempt to combat the overdose crisis in BC.

The Community Overdose Crisis Innovation Fund will supply the most at risk communities with 100 thousand dollars in grant funding through established Community Action Teams.

20 communities have been identified as the highest priority, including Fort St John and Prince George.

A second stream of funding, worth 75 thousand dollars, will be awarded in the fall.

The Community Overdose Crisis Innovation Fund has a budget of 12 million dollars through 2020.
