The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is accepting applications for State Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis Grants. The program aims to address the opioid crisis by increasing access to treatment, reducing unmet treatment needs, and reducing opioid overdose-related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment, and recovery activities for opioid use disorder (including prescription opioids and illicit drugs such as heroin). These grants will be awarded to states and territories based on unmet needs for opioid use disorder treatment and drug poisoning deaths.
The solicitation provides further details about the application process and selection criteria. Applications are due February 17, 2017.
