Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Local Health Opioid Response Funding
FROM: Brigette Reichenbaugh, Health Department
Department: Health Department  

Information
RESOLUTION:
Resolved, that the Board of Commissioners approve the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Local Health Opioid Response funding of $41,000.
RECOMMENDATION:
The Calhoun County Public Health Department (CCPHD) recommends that the Board of Commissioners approve the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Local Health Opioid Response funding of $41,000.
BACKGROUND:
The CCPHD applied for and was awarded $41,000 for the “Local Health Opioid Response” by the MDHHS. This project runs from April 1 – August 31, 2019. As efforts continue to reduce opioid use and the number of opioid related deaths within Calhoun County, the CCPHD, in collaboration with the Calhoun County Opioid Coalition, applied for and was awarded $41,000 to develop and implement a stigma reduction and addiction education campaign.

Proposed activities include a social and traditional media campaign, community presentations by the CCPHD Medical Director, and a creation of a stigma reduction team comprised of people in recovery that puts a face on addiction and MAT (medication assisted treatment) success. As you will see on the attached proposed budget, anticipated expenses include recruiting a marketing firm, producing print materials, allocation of meal expenses and venue fees for coalition and partner meetings, contractual fees for the medical director, and minimal salary and fringe for the CCPHD Health Educator participation.
ALTERNATIVES:
The BOC can either approve or deny this request.
SUMMARY:
The CCPHD requests Board of Commission approval of the $41,000 Local Health Opioid Response funding from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
