Six local health departments/districts are funded for OD2A minigrants to implement evidence-based, evidence-informed, and/or promising practices to prevent drug overdoses in their jurisdictions.

In collaboration with the Kentucky Injury Prevention and Research Center, each mini-grant forms and maintains a local multidisciplinary data-focused group consisting of community stakeholders, uses local drug overdose and other drug-related data results to implement and evaluate drug overdose prevention interventions, and disseminates the results of the implemented interventions and effective strategies.
