The Tribal Opioid Response (TOR) grant program “aims to address opioid crisis in tribal communities by increasing access to culturally appropriate and evidence-based treatment, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT) using one of the three FDA-approved medications for the treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD). The intent is to reduce unmet treatment need and opioid overdose-related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment and/or recovery activities for OUD.”

The purpose of Rural Communities Opioid Response Program- Planning is to strengthen and expand the capacity of rural communities to engage high-risk populations and provide SUD/OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery services. The funds will support 18-months of planning activities, and the full $200,000 award amount will be provided at the beginning of the project period.
