Funding Opportunities: Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Issues

The South Dakota Department of Social Services, Division of Behavioral Health, invites you to apply for several funding opportunities that can be used to support expansion of evidence-based approaches to the prevention, treatment, and recovery to support mental health and substance use disorder issues.

Applications can be accessed here.

Applications received before the next deadline of August 11, 2021 will be reviewed shortly thereafter for projects beginning as soon as October 1, 2021. Additional deadlines are available on October 2021 and into 2022, but we strongly encourage interested applicants to apply sooner rather than later as funds are limited.

Funding to support screening for behavioral health issues, and behavioral health integration, within your primary care clinic as part of the South Dakota SBIRT Program. SBIRT, or Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is an evidence-based practice used to identify, reduce, and prevent problematic use, abuse, and dependence on alcohol and illicit drugs. Successful funding requests have included EMR enhancements to activate screening protocols, purchase of technology (e.g., tablets or kiosks) to support screening integration, training time offset for clinic staff and providers in select evidence-based practices, staff time to plan for and initiate SBIRT practices on site, and integrated behavioral health supports, to name a few.

Opportunity #2 | State Opioid Response Mini-Grants 

Funds are available to organizations seeking to deliver professional education or training in efforts that prevent, respond to, treat, or support recovery for opioid use. Funds may also address stimulant use disorder. Supported training must be provided by a subject matter expert with developed expertise in addiction.

More information on supported activities for both opportunities can be found in the program descriptions within each application form. Awards for mini-grants will be up to $50,000 and must meet all requirements of each program.

To discuss a proposal prior to applying, please contact the individuals identified in each of the applications or simply call 605-367-5236 and indicate you are interested in learning more about these funding opportunities.
