Fall 2020 Nasal Naloxone for EMS Agencies (NNEA) Grant Program

The State Health Commissioner declared the National Opioid Crisis a Virginia public health emergency in 2016. Virginia’s Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS) created the Nasal Naloxone for EMS Agencies (NNEA) in-kind grant program to address the public health emergency by providing licensed EMS agencies with access to Naloxone – medication that can reverse the effects of opioid overdose. The goal of NNEA is to prevent drug overdose deaths involving opioids in Virginia by consistently providing no cost Nasal Naloxone to licensed EMS agencies while the Declaration is in effect. Licensed EMS agencies pursuant to VA Code 32.1-111.12 may apply for NNEA through the EMS-Grant Information Funding Tool (E-GIFT). The NNEA application requires verification of applicants’ nonprofit status, federal identification number (FIN), and electronic signatures from the Authorized Agent, Financial Officer, and Operational Medical Director (OMD). Applications are awarded based on the number of reported transport units or ambulances.

The deadline to apply is Friday, January 29, at 5 p.m. For additional information please read the full grant cycle announcement memo below.
