Wolf Administration Receives $10 Million from Bloomberg Philanthropies to Fight Opioid Epidemic in PennsylvaniaNovember 30, 2018
Pennsylvania has been selected as the first state to participate in a groundbreaking initiative from Bloomberg Philanthropies designed to strengthen state and local opioid prevention and treatment efforts. Governor Tom Wolf accepted a $10 million grant this morning from Michael Bloomberg—founder of Bloomberg Philanthropies and World Health Organization (WHO) Global Ambassador for Noncommunicable Diseases—at the inaugural Bloomberg American Health Summit in Washington, D.C. Governor Wolf was a featured speaker at the event, describing his administration’s approach to reduce the number of Pennsylvanians addicted to opioids.
After recent moves by the federal government to steer more Americans to substandard health insurance plans without protections for pre-existing conditions, Governor Wolf announced that he will continue to fight to ensure that individuals with pre-existing conditions have access to affordable, quality health care.
Governor Wolf signed two bills – now Acts 88 and 89 – into law that will support grandparents raising grandchildren, many because of the opioid epidemic.
