U.S. Attorney Trent Shores Announces More Than $163 Million Available to Fight Addiction Crisis

TULSA, Okla. – U.S. Attorney Trent Shores of the Northern District of Oklahoma today announced that more than $163 million in Department of Justice grants are available to help communities address America’s addiction crisis.

“Our nation is facing the difficult challenge of curbing substance addiction, which threatens public safety and is among the Administration’s top domestic priorities,” said Katharine T. Sullivan, Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Justice Programs. “The Department of Justice is front and center in the fight to meet this challenge. OJP is making historic amounts of grant funding available to ensure that our communities have access to innovative and diverse solutions.”

“This critical funding in the fight against drug addiction is a lifeline to help the sick,” said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores. “I encourage agencies to apply for these grants to fund Oklahoma tailored programs that can make a real difference to Oklahomans suffering with addiction.”

The funding is available through the Office of Justice Programs, the federal government’s leading source of public safety funding and crime victim assistance in state, local and tribal jurisdictions. OJP’s programs support a wide array of activities and services, including programs designed to prevent overdose deaths and break the cycle of addiction and crime.
