SAMHSA Announces Availability of $196 million for Opioid Treatment Grants to Hardest-Hit States and Tribes

SAMHSA is accepting applications for $196 million to treat opioid use disorder through its Targeted Capacity Expansion: Medication Assisted Treatment—Prescription Drug and Opioid Addiction grant program. This funding will expand access to medication-assisted treatment and recovery support services for people with opioid use disorder. This grant program aims to increase the number of people receiving medication-assisted treatment for their opioid use disorder, leading to a decrease in heroin use and prescription opioid misuse. By funding treatment in states with the greatest need for additional treatment resources, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and SAMHSA aim to reduce the number of deaths related to opioid use. 
Application Due Date: Monday, July 9, 2018
