General Brnovich Announces Nearly $2 Million in Grant Funding to Combat the Opioid Crisis in Pima and Maricopa Counties

Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced Tuesday that the Arizona Attorney General’s Office (AGO) has awarded $1,762,914 in grant funding to combat the effects of the opioid crisis. The money will help support programs for nearly 14,000 individuals in Pima and Maricopa counties. It will serve a wide range of diagnosis, treatment, and educational needs, including infants born with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD), medically-underserved communities, grade school children, pregnant women and mothers, adults with mental health-related needs, homeless individuals, and survivors of human trafficking with OUD.

The grant funding comes as a result of the “One Arizona Plan” and AGO-led settlement with four pharmaceutical companies for their roles in the opioid crisis.
