Over eighty people gathered in Tampa on Tuesday, June 26 for a State Targeted Response (STR) Meeting. The purpose of Tampa's STR meeting was to review strategies implemented since the project's launch and to plan for the next phase of implementation.
Attendees represented treatment providers, managing entities, and the Department of Children and Families.
The State Targeted Response represents a federal allocation of funds to respond to the opioid crisis. Florida's slice of the pie from federal STR grant money was approximately 27 million in 2017.
