Tribal Opioid Response Grant (TOR) SAMHSA FOA Due August 20

Dear Tribal Leader and Tribal Health Representatives,

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration recently released a grant funding opportunity announcement (FOA) entitled, “Tribal Opioid Response Grants”. The short title for this program is “TOR” and applications are due no later than August 20, 2018!  Please share it with your colleagues and tribal stakeholders.  Information on the FOA is below and the link for additional information is: https://www.samhsa.gov/grants/grant-announcements/ti-18-016.

Description:
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2018 Tribal Opioid Response grants (Short Title: TOR).  The program aims to address the opioid crisis in tribal communities by increasing access to culturally appropriate and evidence-based treatment, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT) using one of the three FDA-approved medications for the treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD).  The intent is to reduce unmet treatment need and opioid overdose related deaths through the provision of 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 use the results of a current needs assessment if available to the tribe (or carry out a strategic planning process to conduct needs and capacity assessments) to identify gaps and resources from which to build prevention, treatment and/or community-based recovery support services. Grantees will be required to describe how they will expand access to treatment and recovery support services as well as advance substance misuse prevention in coordination with other federally-supported efforts.  Grantees must use funding to supplement and not supplant existing opioid prevention, treatment, and/or recovery activities.  Grantees are required to describe how they will improve retention in care, using a chronic care model or other innovative model that has been shown to improve retention in care.
