NYSAC
US Communities Purchasing Program Provides Lower Cost NARCAN to Counties
As part of our ongoing efforts to provide cost effective solutions to member counties, NYSAC's partnership with US Communities Cooperative purchasing program offers deep discounts on NARCAN Nasal Spray, which is used to reverse the effects of opiate overdose.
 
Several New York counties currently use US Communities to save on a variety of contracts and purchases. Lower costs for NARCAN Nasal Spray is just one more benefit for counties and local governments that are part of US Communities.
 
For more information on how to join the US Communities, visit: http://www.uscommunities.org/government-purchasing/.
