Since 1992, the Comer Family Foundation has offered a grant making program to harm reduction-centered syringe access programs (SAP) to improve the health and wellness of people affected by drug use. These programs provide free sterile syringes, education and community wraparound services to reduce transmission of HIV, hepatitis C and opioid overdose.
