The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is accepting applications for Improving Access to Overdose Treatment grants totaling up to $200,000 per year for up to five years.
SAMHSA will award the funds to Federally Qualified Health Centers, Opioid Treatment Programs, or practitioners who have a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine to expand access to FDA-approved drugs or devices for emergency treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose. The recipients will partner with other prescribers at the community level to develop best practices for prescribing and co-prescribing FDA-approved overdose reversal drugs. After developing best practices, the recipient will train other prescribers in the community as well as individuals who support persons at high risk for overdose.
SAMHSA expects to fund up to five grantees. Click here for the funding opportunity announcement for this grant. Click here for information on how to apply
