Grants to USA local governments and nonprofit organizations for drug deactivation resources in an effort to curb opioid misuse. Funding is intended to distribute deactivation packets throughout the country which will deactivate unused or expired opioids and allow for safe disposal.

As part of the program, the AmerisourceBergen Foundation will distribute drug deactivation resources to municipalities that are actively working to prevent opioid abuse and misuse. The disposable resources use a new technology, which – when combined with water – effectively deactivate opioids, rendering them ineffective for misuse and providing a safe solution for site-of-use disposal.

Drug deactivation resources will be distributed utilizing AmerisourceBergen Corporation's network of U.S. distribution centers. Logistics will be determined based on the location of the organization requesting the resources, as well as the requested quantity. Once received from the AmerisourceBergen Foundation, organizations will have the discretion to determine how to distribute the resources to achieve the most efficient and effective application. Note that these resources cannot be distributed from a pharmacy.

Recipient organizations are encouraged to work with other partner organizations to determine the distribution process, based on local community needs.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

U.S. government (city, county, or state) or IRS-registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations, or a joint application of both types of organizations or community-based coalitions, are eligible to apply.

Previous, current, or prospective customers of AmerisourceBergen Corporation (or any of its companies) are not eligible to receive resources due to the bylaws of AmerisourceBergen Foundation. The only possible exception is a collaborative partnership with a nonprofit or municipal outreach project that has a demonstrated public benefit, as these resources are not intended for customers' patient populations or for pharmacy disbursement.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications will be accepted until September 30, 2018.
