Counties Eligible for Free Fentanyl Test Strip Kits

March 21, 2024

Beginning this week, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) is now including the option to request free fentanyl test strips through the Naloxone Distribution Project (NDP) online application. As part of the 2023-24 Budget, $6 million in one-time funding was appropriated for the distribution of free fentanyl test strips to entities also eligible to receive naloxone through the NDP. Eligible applicants include county public health and behavioral health entities, law enforcement agencies, community clinics, substance use recovery facilities, and organizations that serve individuals experiencing homelessness.

Applicants can now apply for naloxone, fentanyl strips, or both through the online application. Additional information on NDP, including a list of the required materials for the application, can be found on the DHCS Naloxne Distribution Project website.
