Grant Supports Nonprofit's Fight Against Opioid Epidemic

The Matt Adams Foundation is using a $79,000 Cigna Foundation grant to support its Northwest Arkansas Opioid Response Project. Since its inception in March 2019, the organization has trained and distributed Naloxone opioid overdose reversal kits to more than 2,200 community members including 20 police and fire departments, and nearly 50 lives have been saved through the program.
