The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Centers for Substance Abuse Treatment and Prevention are accepting applications for the fiscal year (FY) 2018 Opioid State Targeted Response (STR) Technical Assistance (TA) grant. This grant will be provided to a single entity who will serve as the central coordinating point for ensuring the requirements of this funding opportunity are met. Although there is a single grantee, applications including a consortia with other national allied professional associations are encouraged. The purpose of this program is to identify local physicians, other clinicians, and other providers, for example, advance practice nurses, physician assistants, peers and other healthcare professionals with expertise in treatment and in recovery services for opioid use disorders (OUDs). Based on a state, territory, or tribal nation’s assessed need, these providers will serve as the primary providers of federally supported TA for the program’s successful implementation. The goal of this TA is to ensure the provision of evidence-based prevention, treatment, and recovery support programs/services across the Opioid STR program.
