Additional Opportunities

Recent federal legislation– the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act and the American Rescue Plan Act– provide supplemental funding for states to support substance use disorder services via expansions to the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant and Federal Medical Assistance Percentage for Medicaid programs. We are working with community stakeholders to identify opportunities for these funds to address any unmet prevention, treatment, and recovery needs for people living with or at risk of substance use disorders and provide funding opportunities.  

You may qualify for other state procurement opportunities or federal grants.
