Funding Opportunity Announcement
[Posted on 10/5/2020] The Division of Behavioral Health (DBH) has been awarded the State Opioid Response (SOR) grant from SAMHSA. SOR Funding will be used to enhance the Idaho’s Response to the Opioid Crisis (IROC) program. IROC provides Opiate Use Disorder (OUD) and Stimulant Use Disorder treatment and recovery support services (RSS), including Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), to uninsured Idahoans with an OUD or Stimulant Use Disorder that have an income under 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) and who do not qualify for Medicaid.
Using SOR funding, Idaho aims to bridge the gap in services currently occurring throughout the state. To achieve this, DBH will be dedicating SOR funds to work with community recovery support programs that serve individuals with OUD and Stimulant Use Disorder. This funding is targeted toward supporting RSS which can provide a range of services and programming geared toward promoting and encouraging recovery. The services that can be provided may range from agencies that offer meetings, recovery coaching, counseling, organized outdoor or exercise activities and other creative outlets. Applicants will need to submit a proposal outlining the policies and procedures to support a program for RSS, how they envision it would be successful in a new or existing program, and how they could use this opportunity to enhance their recovery community. All applications are due by 5:00pm MST on Friday November 6, 2020.
Proposal guidelines can be obtained by contacting Mindy Oldenkamp at: Mindy.Oldenkamp@dhw.idaho.gov.
