"U.  Out of this appropriation, $200,000 the second year from the federal State Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis Grant is provided for the purchase of REVIVE! kits and Narcan Nasal Spray."


(This amendment supplants $200,000 from the general fund the second year with new federal grant funding from the State Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis Grant, which was created by the 21st Century CURES Act, passed by Congress in December 2016. The new federal grant aims to address the opioid crisis by increasing access to treatment, reducing unmet treatment needs, and reducing opioid overdose related deaths. The introduced budget included funding for REVIVE! kits and 6,600 units of Narcan Nasal Spray. Each REVIVE! kit includes equipment to conduct two opioid overdose reversals.)
