Community Action Agency receives opioid grant

The Lake Cumberland Community Action Agency in Jamestown was one of 14 organizations to receive a portion of $8 million from the Kentucky Opioid Abatement Advisory Commission within the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office last week.

The Community Action Agency received a little over $375,000 to fund and operate comprehensive programs that help low-income Kentuckians achieve greater economic self-sufficiency.

Last week on local news, we reported the Lake Cumberland District Health Department was also amongst the grant recipients, with a grant of $250,000 focusing on public and preventative health by offering clinics and programs, and by engaging communities to adopt health-focused policies and initiatives.
