SAMHSA Offers Opioids Treatment Grants to Hard-Hit States

Thirty-five states and tribal organizations nationwide are eligible to apply. SAMHSA says the desired outcomes of the grant program are to increase the number of people receiving medication-assisted treatment for their opioid use disorder and a decrease in heroin use and prescription opioid misuse.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is accepting applications for $196 million in grants to treat opioid use disorder through its Targeted Capacity Expansion: Medication Assisted Treatment-Prescription Drug Opioid Addiction grant program. Eligibility is limited to the 35 states, political subdivisions within states, and public and private nonprofit organizations in states with the highest rates of primary treatment admissions for heroin and prescription opioids per capita. It includes those with the most dramatic increases for heroin and prescription opioids as identified by SAMHSA's 2015 Treatment Episode Data Set.

Applications are due by July 9.

The new funding will expand access to medication-assisted treatment and recovery support services to people with opioid use disorder. Tribes and tribal organizations from anywhere in the United States are eligible to receive funding.

SAMHSA says the desired outcomes of the grant program are to increase the number of people receiving medication-assisted treatment for their opioid use disorder and a decrease in heroin use and prescription opioid misuse.

"This grant opportunity is made possible in part by the increased opioid funding secured from Congress by President Trump and will help expand access to proven addiction treatment in communities hardest hit by the opioid crisis," said HHS Secretary Alex Azar. "We know medication-assisted treatment is an effective, essential tool in fighting the opioid crisis, and HHS will continue working to expand access to it."

"A targeted approach allows us to deliver evidence-based practices and programs where they are needed most," said Dr. Elinore McCance-Katz, assistant HHS secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use.
