HHS – Treatment, Recovery, and Workforce Support Grants *Forecast* (2020)

This is a forecasted opportunity. It is estimated to post on February 28, 2020. There is no estimated due date.

“The purpose of this program is to implement evidence-based programs to support individuals in substance use disorder treatment and recovery to live independently and participate in the workforce. To achieve this objective, recipients must coordinate, as applicable, with Indian tribes or tribal organizations, state and local workforce development boards (see definitions), lead state agencies responsible for a workforce investment activity (see definitions), and state agencies responsible for carrying out substance use disorder prevention and treatment programs.”

Helpful resources

  • 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.
