Department of Health Proposes New Rules for Authorizing Drug Donation Programs



On August 7, 2023, the New Jersey Department of Health proposed new rules for authorizing drug donation programs. The proposed new rules would set mandatory standards for any applicant seeking to establish and maintain a drug donation program. The applicant would be required to submit a program proposal that includes a description of the entity, including its history, mission, ownership structure, staffing, and any other characteristics or relevant facts that demonstrate the organization’s ability to establish a drug donation program appropriately and safely. The applicant would also be required to provide policies and procedures for accepting, transporting, safely storing, and dispensing donated drugs and supplies. Donors would receive a tax credit for their donations.
