Pew Charitable Trust: Community Opioid Response and Evaluation ProjectDeadline: August 30, 2019
The Community Opioid Response and Evaluation (CORE) project will advance adoption of best practices in addressing opioid use disorder through the evaluation of existing community innovations. The CORE project will provide support for up to six community research collaboratives to conduct robust evaluations of a local initiative through granted funds and technical assistance.
The Pew Charitable Trusts is supporting the CORE project to:
- Identify a wide array of diverse communities implementing innovative, multi-sectoral, equity-focused programs to address the opioid epidemic
- Support evaluation of community-based projects to understand the impact of programs across public health, social services, health care, behavioral health, justice, and other community-based settings that work to prevent and treat opioid misuse and opioid use disorder (OUD) within affected communities
- Develop and curate evidence-based resources for communities across the nation seeking to respond to the opioid epidemic
Amount: Up to six awards of up to $500,000 will be made for a project duration of 24 months.
Eligibility: Public and private nonprofit organizations, local government agencies and non-governmental organizations, federally or state-recognized Indian tribal governments, and indigenous organizations. Applicant organizations must be based in the United States or its territories and focus on individuals with, or at-risk for, OUD and represent diverse geographic areas. Preference will be given to applicants that are either public entities or nonprofit organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and are not private foundations or Type III supporting organizations.
