Opioid Harm Prevention Program
Forecasted Funding Opportunity—Division of Public Health Overdose Data to Action Program

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) Overdose Data to Action Program will be announcing a funding opportunity in January 2020. Eligible applicants include: local health departments, tribal health clinics, cities, counties, and community-based non-profit organizations.

The Overdose Data to Action Community Prevention Grants Program is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The goal of this funding opportunity is to strengthen and enhance the capacity of communities. Emphasis will be placed on promoting strategies and activities that build local capacity to prevent morbidity and mortality associated with opioid overdoses.

Proposed multi-sector, community-level strategies must address at least one of the following focus areas: support the ability to collect, analyze, and apply data; enhance linkages to care; support projects that build partnerships with public safety and first responders; and empower individuals to make safer choices.

This is a multi-year funding opportunity. Renewal funding is based on successful performance and the availability of funds to DHS from a federal funding appropriation. It is anticipated the first contract period will run from May 1, 2020 to August 31, 2020. Renewal contract periods for the following two years will be from September to August, with the entire project ending August 31, 2022. We anticipate funding 10-15 projects with $55,000-$85,000 per year (prorated for year one).

Be on the lookout for the request for application in January 2020.
