This is a forecasted opportunity. It is estimated to post on November 4, 2019 and be due on February 3, 2020.
“The purpose of this program is to enhance and expand behavioral health-related paraprofessionals’ knowledge, skills, and expertise to work as part of an integrated, interprofessional team in a high need and high demand area to support children whose parents are impacted by opioid use disorders (OUD) and other substance use disorders (SUD), as well as their family members who are in guardianship roles.”
- Learn how civil legal aid helps those affected by the opioid crisis in a co-branded NLADA and Justice in Government Project factsheet. On the last page are four examples of partnerships that are currently serving individuals affected by the opioid crisis.
- The NLADA recently presented at a national conference on how legal aid can help individuals affected by substance use disorders. We also heard from two states on what they’re doing to address the opioid crisis. Access that presentation here.
- What is a forecasted grant? Some agencies, like HHS, make it easy to learn about “forecasted” grants, or potential funding opportunities. Grant-making agencies, pending budgetary and discretionary spending approvals and federal agency program decisions, often offer previews of their planned funding opportunities.
