The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has awarded New Jersey with $13 million to combat the opioid crisis.

The funding taps into the Opioid State Targeted Response program, created by the 21st Century Cures Act and administered by HHS’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

“These resources come attached to priorities designed to combat the crisis and drive down the terrible opioid abuse statistics,” said Rep. Leonard Lance, R-7th District, in a statement. “This problem has hit every community. Our efforts are making a difference, but we cannot let up on the effort.”
