Purpose

Harm Reduction Grants provide funding to support local health departments in Maryland to act as harm reduction authorities and hubs for comprehensive substance use disorder care.

The program is designed to reduce substance-related morbidity and mortality by optimizing services for people who use drugs, including:

  • Improving access to service entry points
  • Leveraging non-traditional service delivery models
  • Increasing the capacity and harm reduction competence of the healthcare workforce
  • Ensuring systems are responsive to local need

Strategic priorities include:

  • Highly impacted populations including individuals with lack of proximal access to medication assisted treatment and intensive outpatient facilities
  • Geographically specific areas
