TOPEKA – Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) Secretary Laura Howard announced today that the agency has awarded funds to 45 substance use disorder (SUD) providers as part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Substance Use Prevention, Treatment and Recovery Services Block Grant (SUPTRS-BG or SUBG).

The SUBG program funds states and territories to help plan, implement, and evaluate activities that prevent and treat substance use. This grant opportunity builds on efforts to beat the overdose epidemic and tackle the mental health crisis – two key pillars of Governor Laura Kelly’s administration.

“With the increasing concern for addressing the overdose crisis in Kansas and across the country, the behavioral health team at KDADS welcomes this funding as it provides opportunities to support the critical work we do and the resources needed to create long-lasting systemic changes,” KDADS Behavioral Health Services Commissioner Drew Adkins said. “Ultimately our goal is to create healthier families and communities in Kansas by expanding treatment and support for people whenever and wherever they need it.”

Substance Use Block Grant (SUBG) treatment providers are reimbursed for substance use disorder treatment services using a combination of SUBG Federal funds, State General funds, and State Fee funds. For this opportunity, providers were allocated roughly $21 million for reimbursement of treatment services to the under/uninsured in SFY2025.

With this federal SUBG funding, KDADS has been able to expand prevention and treatment efforts by awarding contracts to 45 SUD providers across Kansas:
