Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21), Member of the Bipartisan Task Force to Combat the Heroin Epidemic, applauded the announcement of over $70 million over multiple years to help communities and healthcare providers prevent opioid overdose deaths and provide treatment for opioid use disorder.

“The heroin and opioid epidemic touches our communities, our homes and our families in ways that have grave effects on everyday people and everyday lives,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “This critical funding will go a long way to combat this epidemic that affects far too many in our district and around our nation. As a Member of the Bipartisan Heroin Task Force, I will continue to work in Congress on solutions to this tragedy.”

Congresswoman Stefanik has supported the 21st Century Cures Act and the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) in Congress. For more information on these grants and how to apply, click here.
