The Department of Health and Human Services and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration last week announced that they will maintain the Opioid State Targeted Response grant funding allocation formula for the second year of the program. Created by the 21st Century Cures Act, the $1 billion Opioid STR grant program expands access to evidence-based prevention, treatment, and recovery support services, reduces unmet treatment needs, and helps to prevent opioid overdose deaths. Hospitals can contact their state addictions authority to find out about sub-contracting opportunities under the STR grant program.
