Funders' Response to the Heroin Epidemic

Greater Cincinnati is in the middle of an epidemic of addiction. To tackle this, private funders in the region have formed the Funders' Response to the Heroin Epidemic (FRHE), a group dedicated to ending the Greater Cincinnati region's opioid and heroin epidemic. FRHE provides financial resources and strategic support to strengthen local communities' response. It operated by InterAct for Change, a nonprofit subsidiary of Interact for Health.

Areas of work

Currently, FRHE efforts are focused around the following strategies, which have been shown to effectively address substance abuse within communities:

  • Pre-arrest diversion (Quick Response Teams)
  • Reducing stigma around opioid use and addiction
