White House urges Congress to act on request to provide states with life-saving funding to respond to the overdose epidemic

The Biden-Harris Administration is delivering on its promises – lowering costs for families, protecting American lives from the devastating impacts of challenges like the climate crisis and the opioid epidemic, and ensuring America can compete to win in the global marketplace. At the same time, additional resources are needed to meet the needs of the American people, support our communities, and protect our nation and its interests.

The White House continues to call on Congress to reach a comprehensive, bipartisan agreement to fund the government and provide the emergency resources requested by the Administration for critical bipartisan national security and domestic priorities—including $1.2 billion to counter fentanyl trafficking and more than $1.5 billion in State Opioid Response grants to strengthen addiction treatment, overdose prevention measures, and recovery support services. These key investments would save lives and deliver on President Biden’s National Drug Control Strategy by addressing the two key drivers of the overdose epidemic: drug traffickers and untreated addiction.

The State Opioid Response grant program has provided treatment services to over 1.2 million people and enabled states to reverse approximately 500,000 overdoses with nearly 9 million purchased overdose reversal medication kits. The Administration’s supplemental request for the grant program would expand these essential life-saving services. Here’s what that would mean for Tribes, all 50 states, and the District of Columbia:
