Contracts for services to Connecticut health, nonprofit, municipal, and community organizations for drug overdose data-surveillance and overdose prevention activities in local communities. Funding is intended to improve the response to drug overdoses and to develop and strengthen the public health system interventions required to improve protective behaviors and reduce harmful use of prescription and illicit drugs in order to reduce drug overdose morbidity and mortality. The goal of the request is to enhance public health access and application of data and to ensure local communities are equipped with the necessary resources to support their prevention and response efforts alongside community-level and statewide partners.

Under OD2A, the Opioid and Drug Overdose Prevention Program will continue its work focused on increasing comprehensiveness and timeliness of surveillance data; building state and local capacity to advance promising public health program practices; ensuring Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs are easier to use and accessible; and maintaining and expanding partnerships with health systems, insurers, and communities to improve opioid prescribing, while also ensuring linkages to care and ongoing innovative public health practice based on research evidence. The Program will ensure the two components of the award: surveillance and prevention, are linked and implemented as part of a system by using high quality, complete, and timelier data on overdoses to inform prevention and response efforts.
