U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Tribal Opioid Response Grants
The Tribal Opioid Response program aims to address the opioid crisis in tribal communities by increasing access to culturally appropriate and evidence-based treatment, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT) using one of the three U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved medications for the treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD). The intent is to reduce unmet treatment need and opioid overdose-related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment and/or recovery activities for OUD.
Amount: Approximately $35,985,372 is available to make up to 163 awards. Funds will be distributed non-competitively based on a distribution list. If you did not receive a TOR grant in 2018 and your tribe in not listed in Appendix K in the notice of funding, you may apply for $50,000. See notice for further information.
Eligibility: Federally recognized American Indian or Alaska Native tribes or tribal organizations. Tribes and tribal organizations may apply individually, as a consortia, or in partnership with an urban Indian organization.
