Kentucky Attorney General Cameron Activates Opioid Abatement Advisory Commission's Online Grant Proposal Portal for Programs Combatting the Opioid Epidemic

FRANKFORT, KY – Attorney General Daniel Cameron has activated the Kentucky Opioid Abatement Advisory Commission's (OAAC) online grant proposal portal. Organizations and individuals dedicated to combatting the opioid epidemic are encouraged to begin a submission.

While submissions will be accepted on an ongoing basis, the OAAC recommends that submissions be completed within 30 days of starting the process.  

"An important part of our work in combatting the opioid epidemic involves administering the Commonwealth's portion of the $478 million in opioid settlement funds," said Attorney General Cameron. "These funds will be used, in part, to support organizations that develop and implement programs to combat the opioid crisis in Kentucky. We appreciate the dedication of those who stand on the front lines in this fight and invite organizations to apply for funding so that, together, we can lend hope and help to those struggling with opioid use disorder."

The OAAC was established by the General Assembly's passage of House Bill 427 and is responsible for administering the Commonwealth's portion of an historic $478 million settlement with opioid companies.

In June of 2022, Attorney General Cameron named W. Bryan Hubbard as the Executive Director of the OAAC and announced the nine voting and two non-voting members of the OAAC. Since that time, the OAAC has held three regular meetings to discuss and establish a framework for distributing opioid settlement funds.

To hear directly from Kentuckians affected by the opioid epidemic, the OAAC is hosting eight town halls across the Commonwealth. The OAAC has held three town halls, and the remaining five community events will be held in Covington, Lexington, Louisville, Bowling Green, and Paducah.

"The Commission is committed to administering the Commonwealth's portion of the opioid settlement funds with honesty, transparency, and accountability," said Executive Director of the OAAC Bryan Hubbard. "We encourage individuals and organizations committed to waging war on this tragedy to submit their intent to apply."
