Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations to provide long-term substance abuse and addiction recovery services. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to promote the enhancement, development, delivery, and expansion of qualifying recovery support services. Funding may also be used for education and outreach related to recovery.

Grantees must use BCOR funds to primarily develop, expand, and enhance community and statewide RSS, including:

  • Peer Recovery Support Services (PRSS) designed and delivered by people who have experienced both drug/alcohol addiction and recovery. Since PRSS are designed and delivered by peers who have been successful in the recovery process, they embody a powerful message of hope, as well as a wealth of experiential knowledge. The services can effectively extend the reach of treatment beyond the clinical setting into the everyday environment of those seeking to achieve or sustain recovery. Examples would be using funds for peer mentors, recovery coaches or recovery support specialists; and
  • RSS are non-clinical services that directly assist individuals and families to recover from alcohol or drug problems. They include social support, linkage to allied service providers (e.g., TANF, Medicaid), and a full range of human services that facilitate recovery and wellness contributing to an improved quality of life (e.g., housing linkages, childcare, vocational, educational, legal, and transportation services, etc.). These services may be provided prior to, during, and/or after, treatment.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The statute limits eligibility for this program to RCOs that are domestic private nonprofit entities in states, territories, or tribes. RCOs are independent, non-profit organizations led and governed by representatives of local communities of recovery. To ensure that recovery communities are fully represented, only organizations controlled and managed by members of the addiction recovery community are eligible to apply.

Note: Special consideration for funding will be given to rural applicants, including applicants serving areas with an age-adjusted rate of drug overdose deaths that is above the national average and areas with a shortage of prevention and treatment services.

The applicant organization must document its eligibility by including the following documents in Attachment 5:
1. A Certificate of Eligibility (Appendix L);
2. A letter from the IRS designating the applicant organization as a 501(c)(3); and
3. A letter from the Board of Directors assuring that the organization submitting the application has served as a domestic non-profit RCO for a minimum of two years.

Grant recipients that received their initial funding award under the Building Communities of Recovery FOA (TI-19-003) in FY 2019 and 2020 are not eligible to apply.
