Funding Changes Over Time

CDC began funding states hit hardest by the opioid overdose epidemic in 2014. Since then, we have increased our funding and expanded funding to a variety of state, local, tribal, academic, and clinical organizations. The visuals below are not comprehensive of all funding but reflect major multi-state overdose surveillance and prevention awards.
