$50 Million To Help Tribes Address Opioid Crisis

SAMHSA is accepting applications for up to $50 million in Tribal Opioid Response Grants. The grants, which will go to tribes and tribal organizations, will fund prevention, treatment, and recovery activities in response to the opioid crisis. The Tribal Opioid Response Grants will address the opioid crisis in tribal communities by increasing access to culturally appropriate, evidence-based treatment, including medication-assisted treatment. The grants will reduce unmet treatment needs and opioid overdose-related deaths.

Activities funded by this program will provide a comprehensive response to the opioid crisis spanning the spectrum of prevention, treatment, and recovery support services. “Preventing, treating, or recovering from an opioid use disorder often involves a range of services,” said Elinore F. McCance-Katz, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use. “The grants we are announcing will support an expansion of evidence-based treatment and services in American Indian and Alaska Native communities. More people will have access to lifesaving health care.”
