Background Discussion

The Opioid-focused Recovery Peer Coach Pilot Program was a component of the Commission's Legislative Platform. $500,000 was awarded to Manatee County.

Upon receipt of the funds for the program, Manatee County will provide contractual oversight of the grant program and carry out the requirements of the  grant.

Results of the implementation of the program will be shared quarterly with the Board of County Commissioners.

At the end of the program staff will provide an in-depth report of the results of program meant to decrease opioid related health problems.

These approvals for legal signature authority of pre-contracting documents with Central Florida Behavioral Health Network (CFBHN)permit a formal Contractual Agreement to be received and signed by the designated authority (Department Director).
