Clark County wants state to help fund needle-exchange program

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A southern Indiana county wants the state to help fund a needle-exchange program.

It's the second time Clark County officials have filed an application for the program. 

The goal is to provide drugs users with clean syringes to help slow the spread of HIV and other diseases. State officials denied the first application, saying they wanted more information about the program. 

The new application will outline why the needle-exchange is needed and suggest funding options. 

Clark County officials say they will ask Indiana nonprofits for funding.
