States receive grants from the federal government and distribute funds according to their intended use. As an example, a major announcement late in 2016 concerns new grants totaling almost $1 billion which will go to fight the opioid crisis in the U.S. This is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Opioid Initiative that started in 2015. States had to apply for the funds by a specific date so it’s clearly important -- whether you are an individual or a state -- to stay on top of government announcements about grant opportunities. Our [[domain_discuss:grants.gov|review of grants.gov]] provides clear instructions for using and searching that website.
