Wisconsin earns $1.4 million grant from the Federal Bureau of Justice Assistance to improve service

The Enhanced Prescription Drug Monitoring Program through the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services recently earned a $1.4 million grant from the Federal Bureau of Justice Assistance.

In the past 3 years, the program has been awarded competitive grants of more than $5 million from the Bureau of Justice Assistance. The ePDMP service provides access to prescribing records as a tool to combat the state’s opioid crisis and other addictive drugs.

This year’s grant will fund enhancements to the ePDMP system to modernize the self-service functionality and provide improved data quality, better customer support and greater user satisfaction.
