Province allocates funding to combat overdose crisis at local level

1.7 million dollars in funding is being allocated by the provincial government to combating the overdose crisis at the local level.

27 communities and organizations will receive the money, which will support local action to save lives, address stigma, and help make treatment and recovery more accessible.

Each of the organizations receiving funding are operating projects which deal with issues specific to their communities.

In the north projects in Prince George, Quesnel, Fort St James, Dawson Creek, and Smithers will all benefit from the funding.

The money is part of a two stream grant administered by the Canadian Mental Health Association and Community Action Initiative.
