Through Opioid Settlement Funds, OASAS is seeking applications for the development of a transportation program for individuals who are enrolled in or are seeking treatment, prevention, recovery, or harm reduction services for a substance use disorder. This initiative will assist individuals by providing them transportation to and from a variety of destinations that support their individualized recovery efforts and goals. Non-medical transportation can be provided through ride share programs, use of bus passes and through providers using their own fleet vehicles with peers as drivers and/or accompanying drivers. In addition, this initiative will assist the individual in developing their own transportation plan to promote long-term transportation independence. Approximately $6.3 million is available to serve up to 13 applicants at $240,000 each per year for two years based on funding availability.
