SAMHSA Announces Grants to Expand Substance Use Treatment and Prevention

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) recently announced $25.6 million in grants to expand access to medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder and prevent the misuse of prescription drugs. Eligible nonprofit entities can apply through April 29 for up to $750,000 each to expand access to medication-assisted treatment, and through April 25 for up to $500,000 each for resources to raise awareness about the dangers of sharing medications, fake or counterfeit pills sold online and over-prescribing.

The two grant programs are:

  • The Strategic Prevention Framework for Prescription Drugs (SPF Rx) grant program provides funds for state agencies, territories, and tribal entities that have completed a Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant plan or a similar state plan to target prescription drug misuse. The grant program will raise awareness about the dangers of sharing medications, fake or counterfeit pills sold online, and over prescribing. The grant will fund a total of $3 million over five years for up to six grantees.
  • The Medication-Assisted Treatment – Prescription Drug and Opioid Addiction (MAT-PDOA) grant program provides resources to help expand and enhance access to Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD). It will help increase the number of individuals with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) receiving MOUD and decrease illicit opioid use and prescription opioid misuse. The grant will fund a total of $22.6 million over 5 years for up to 30 grantees. No less than $11 million will be awarded to Native American tribes, tribal organizations, or consortia.
