The purpose of this grant is to address opioid-related morbidity and mortality in Illinois. This grant has two goals.


Goal one is to provide intensive support to 18 high-need rural Illinois counties that suffer from a high burden and are particularly under-resourced by equipping municipal police, sheriff departments, and fire departments in the Target Area with naloxone and provide training for law enforcement officers and firefighters on naloxone administration, overdose prevention, and treatment referral. The Target Area counties include Randolph, Washington, Perry, Jefferson, Marion, Wayne, Clay, Effingham, Fayette, Montgomery, Jasper, Crawford, Lawrence, Wabash, Greene, Christian, Richland, and Edwards.

ILEAS will track, inventory, and provide real-time or near real-time reporting on naloxone purchase and distribution activities, including but not limited to the following: number of naloxone units initially supplied broken down by individual law enforcement agency and fire fighter; number of resupply requests received and fulfilled, broken down by agency, and reason for resupply request. ILEAS will also report on number of officers from each participating law enforcement agency and fire department that complete the online naloxone training.
