The Order allows for federal grant funds to provide for services to Florida communities instead of waiting until the start of the next fiscal year, July 1, 2017. The HHS grant of $27M over two years, provides funds to the Department of Children and Families, to provide prevention, treatment, and recovery support services to address this epidemic.
The Order also directs DCF, DOH, and FDLE to meet with communities and hold workshops to identify additional strategies to fight the rising opioid usage cases in Florida. (1)
