Kansas State Opioid Response III 2022-2024 Community Recovery Sub-Grants

The State of Kansas, Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) was awarded a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) State Opioid Response III (SOR III) grant. Grant funding ends on September 29, 2024. The purpose of the Kansas SOR grant project is to address the opioid crisis by increasing access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) using FDA-approved medications for the treatment of opioid use disorder, reducing unmet treatment need, and reducing opioid-related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment, and recovery activities for opioid-use disorder (OUD), including prescription opioids, heroin, and illicit fentanyl analogs. This grant also allows for treatment of persons with stimulant use disorders.

The purpose of this Request for Application (RFA) is to address treatment and recovery activities required by the State Opioid Response III grant. The goal is to support clients in treatment for opioid/stimulant use as they transition from a criminal justice system or another rehabilitation program towards recovery from addiction. The provider must include data or justification to demonstrate areas of need and where the services will be provided.

Please be advised that the federal funding for this project has only been guaranteed through September 29, 2024.
