- Implementing secondary prevention strategies, including the purchase and distribution of naloxone to first responders
- Collaboration and coordination of funding streams related to the prevention of prescription drug and opioid overdose-related deaths, including coordinating with any HRSA Rural Opioid Overdose Reversal grants awarded to communities served by the grantee
