Opioid Settlement Fund Grant Program

In response to the receipt of funds from the Opioid Settlements that were distributed through the State of Alaska to the Kenai Peninsula Borough, the Kenai Peninsula Borough established the Opioid Settlement Fund Grant Program through Ordinance 2021-19-50.

This grant program is limited to no more than five grants. This limit is regardless of the amount of funding provided through settlement funds. Should more than five applicants submit for funding, a committee of five members will be established by the Grants Administrator and the applications will be evaluated based on the following criteria:




Budget and Project Narratives

Number of communities served


Service to low-income individuals or disadvantaged communities


Ingenuity, new ideas and forward thinking

The total funding available this current year is $170,458.58 and has been appropriated by the assembly. It will be divided into equal parts by the number of accepted grantees who submit their applications to this program.
