    NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services


    In December 2016 the 21st Century Cures Act was enacted. This legislation authorized the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to issue a request for applications for fiscal year (FY) 2017 State Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis Grants (Short Title: Opioid STR). The program aims to address the opioid crisis by increasing access to treatment, reducing unmet treatment need, and reducing opioid overdose related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment and recovery activities for opioid use disorder (OUD) (including prescription opioids as well as illicit drugs such as heroin)

    Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration intends that its service grants result in the delivery of services as soon as possible after award. Service delivery should begin by the fourth month of the project, at the latest. To meet SAMHSAs timeframe Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene (RFMH)/Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) are releasing this Request for Applications pre-award

    The primary aim of the RFMH/OASAS prevention effort is to deliver evidence-based prevention services to underserved, hard-to-reach youth, and other at-risk populations in afterschool and weekend program settings in underserved communities including upstate urban communities. Applicants will be judged in part on their ability to provide primary prevention services in settings where no such services currently exist.

    History of Funding

    None is available.

    Additional Information
