The Hope Partnership Project (HPP) of Ross County has received a $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which was provided through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The Partnership’s mission is to help combat the opioid crisis affecting those in Southern Ohio. The funds awarded will support prevention, treatment, and recovery efforts through the HPP.  


Ohio University Chillicothe is one of four members of the HPP, which also includes Adena Health System, Friel and Associates, HPP, and the Ross County Health District. These members are all affiliates of the Ross Community Opioid Response Program (Ross CORP).


Ohio ranks in the top 75th risk percentile in Ohio for overdose indicators. More information and plans for the grant may be found on their web site.
