Funding opportunity: Tribal Opioid Response Grants

SAMHSA recently released the funding opportunity announcement, “Tribal Opioid Response Grants.”

The program will:

  • address the opioid crisis in tribal communities by increasing access to culturally appropriate and evidence-based treatment, including medication-assisted treatment, for the treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD)
  • reduce unmet treatment need and opioid overdose-related deaths through prevention, treatment, and/or recovery activities for OUD

The program supplements current activities focused on reducing the impact of opioids and will contribute to a comprehensive response to the opioid epidemic. Tribes will identify gaps and resources from which to build prevention, treatment, and/or community-based recovery support services.

Eligible applicants are:

  • tribes and tribal consortia
  • tribal organizations and urban Indian organizations
SAMHSA will allocate $50,000,000 to a maximum of 263 grants for up to 2 years.
Application deadline: August 20, 2018
