Request for Applications: NYS OASAS SOR 2020 – Mobile Medication Units (MMU))

The New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS), through its fiscal agent, the Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene, Inc. (RFMH), is a recipient of a State Opioid Response Grant (SOR) from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The SOR Grant will support several OASAS initiatives to address and deter opioid use disorder through prevention, treatment and recovery programs.

The development of Mobile Medication Units (MMU) is made possible as a result of the release of the Final Rule on MMUs by the Drug Enforcement Authority (DEA) and is in response to the state’s need for increasing Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) services availability. MMUs are one of the many strategies utilized to address the opioid epidemic.

OASAS will award up to $1.65 million in SOR 2020 funds to assist OTPs in developing MMUs. The one-time only awards of up to $550,000 will be made to establish 3 MMUs providing services in New York City (NYC), with the priority of establishing MMUs in Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island and/or serving special populations as described in section (I)(C) of the RFA. The purpose of the award is to purchase and retrofit an MMU, purchase and upgrade equipment for the MMU, and recruitment and hiring costs. Funds may not be applied for any other purpose.

 

Eligible Applicants
