Valley opioid board waits for guidance from state


AUSTINTOWN — The OneOhio Region 7 collaborative discussed this week the need to come up with funding priorities for using dollars from the state’s opioid settlement.

Ohio will see $808 million over 18 years from the settlement, aimed at preventing, treating and abating opioid addiction.

The collaborative is tasked with taking grant applications and deciding how funds will be allocated throughout Trumbull and Mahoning counties.
