The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention awarded Wisconsin additional funding to beef up its efforts to curb opioid abuse, according to a Tuesday statement.

Wisconsin received roughly $752,000 in supplemental funding that can be used to scale up prevention efforts, like increasing the use of prescription drug monitoring programs and expanding the reach of messages about opioid risks. Wisconsin is now receiving $2.6 million from the same program.

The state also received an additional $131,000 to better track and prevent opioid-involved overdoses. The state is now receiving $460,000 through the program.

CDC announced $28.6 million in funding to 44 states and the District of Columbia Tuesday.
