Grants to Washington, DC nonprofit organizations to prevent, treat, and assist in the recovery of individuals with opioid use disorder. Funding is intended to support services that reduce unmet treatment needs, increase access to medications, and reduce deaths caused by opioid abuse.

To reduce opioid-related deaths 50% by 2020, the DC Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) is seeking to use District of Columbia Opioid Response (DCOR) grant funds to build a comprehensive system of care for residents with opioid use disorder (OUD) throughout the District. This program includes a range of opportunities across the continuum of care. 

The District is building a model with multiple access points to a coordinated network of treatment and RSS providers that will collaborate around the assessment, stabilization, and ongoing treatment of individuals with OUD.
