Grants starting at $50,000 to USA tribes and tribal organizations to address the opioid epidemic impacting tribal communities. Applicants are advised to verify or create the required registrations well in advance of the deadline. Funding is intended to increase access to culturally-appropriate and evidence-based treatment including medication-assisted treatment (MAT) using one of the three FDA-approved medications for the treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD). The intent is to reduce unmet treatment need and opioid overdose-related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment and/or recovery activities for OUD.
Grantees will develop and provide opioid misuse prevention, treatment, and recovery support services for the purposes of addressing the opioid abuse and overdose crisis within the tribes. This service array should be based on needs identified in the Tribe’s strategic plan. Grantees will be required to report expenditures for all activities and ensure available resources within the tribe are leveraged for substance use prevention, treatment, and recovery support services to avoid duplication of efforts.
Additionally, the use of these funds requires that evidence-based treatments, practices and interventions for OUD be used by grantees and subgrantees. SAMHSA requires that Food Drug Administration-approved medication-assisted treatment (MAT) be provided to those diagnosed with OUD. FDA-approved MAT for OUD includes methadone, buprenorphine products, including single-entity buprenorphine products, buprenorphine/naloxone tablets, films, buccal preparations, injectable buprenorphine products, buprenorphine implants, and injectable extended-release naltrexone.
In addition to these treatment services, grantees will be required to employ effective prevention and recovery support services to ensure that individuals are receiving a comprehensive array of services across the spectrum of prevention, treatment, and recovery.
