While the differences between applications and requested funding, 138 and $87.5 million, between Region 1 (Franklin County) and Region 16 (Defiance,Fulton, Henry, Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert, & Williams Counties) appears to be significant, it is not worth focusing on as it misses the point. Coming out of the first RFP process, every region, including the regions with the smallest budgets, received funding requests multiple times above their allotment. This clearly shows that all regions will have a competitive process ahead.

The degree of competition present in the first round of funding not only shows immense interest from organizations to get these dollars into communities to begin saving lives, but also shows that the outreach to increase awareness done by the Foundation and its board members, local regional boards, and advocates has worked. Organizations applied and this money can finally begin moving forward.

Regional Boards will now begin reviewing applications and making their recommendations.

With the application process closed it will now move into the third step of the funding process, Regional Review. Regional Boards will now begin reviewing applications and making their recommendations.  As the Regions embark on this process, six of which have already done so, The Center for Community Solutions encourages Regions to continue to engage in a thoughtful process when making recommendations with this one-time funding. Community Solutions will continue to monitor Regional board meetings and the Foundation’s progress in addressing the opioid epidemic as the Foundation’s work continues.
