The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Agency Announces Funding to Improve Access to Overdose Treatment

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP), is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2017 Improving Access to Overdose Treatment (Short Title: OD Treatment Access). SAMHSA will award OD Treatment Access funds to a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), Opioid Treatment Program, or practitioner who has a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine to expand access to Food and Drug Administration (FDA)- approved drugs or devices for emergency treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose. The grantee will partner with other prescribers at the community level to develop best practices for prescribing and co-prescribing FDA-approved overdose reversal drugs. After developing best practices, the grantee will train other prescribers in key community sectors as well as individuals who support persons at high risk for overdose.

In 2013, SAMHSA released the Opioid Overdose Prevention Toolkit to help reduce the number of opioid-related overdose deaths and adverse events. The OD Treatment Access grant program will utilize this toolkit and other resources to help the grantee train and provide resources for health care providers and pharmacists on the prescribing of drugs or devices approved or cleared under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act for emergency treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose. The OD Treatment Access grant program will also ensure the grantee establishes protocols to connect patients who have experienced a drug overdose with appropriate treatment, including medication- assisted treatment and appropriate counseling and behavioral therapies.

Grant Amount: Grants of up to $1,000,000 are available.

Eligibility: SAMHSA is limiting eligibility to Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) (as defined in section 1861(aa) of the Social Security Act), opioid treatment programs as defined under part 8 of title 42, Code of Federal Regulations, and practitioners dispensing narcotic drugs pursuant to section 303(g) of the Controlled Substances Act.

The eligibility for this grant program is statutorily defined in Section 544 of the Public Health Service Act.

Due Date: July 31, 2017

The Disability Communications Fund Supports Programs and Technology that Benefit Californians with Disabilities

The Disability Communications Fund (DCF) supports programs and technology that benefit communication and information access needs of Californians with disabilities. DCF’s mission is to serve as an educator, convener and resource that works collaboratively to ensure communications access to people with disabilities in California.

The fund has three priorities:

Training the next generation of Assistive Technology Experts: Disability Communications Fund (DCF) supports projects that build an organization’s capacity to provide services through the training of professionals. The goal of this priority is to expand the availability of professionals trained in Assistive Technology (AT) and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) tools and strategies. Training can be provided by the applicant or for the applicant, and may include sending staff to conferences. Projects should:

oUse an existing & tested curriculum, or include the development of a curriculum. The curriculum should be documented in a way that facilitates ongoing sharing of knowledge and best practices.

Given other available public sources of funding, the trainings should focus on no/low tech (low cost, low maintenance, not mechanically complex or electronic,) and mid-tech systems (electronic or battery operated, some complex features, may require some training). This priority intentionally focuses on the training of professionals. Therefore, hands-on application of the curriculum involving individuals with disabilities and/or family members as part of the project is useful, but should not be the focus of the project.

Facilitating Research and Innovation: Disability Communications Fund (DCF) supports organizations in the collection and evaluation of data on a service or target population for the purpose of documenting best practices, gap analysis, or advocating for systemic changes. This may include pilot and trial programs prior to seeking government funding. DCF also wants to encourage the development and testing of new technologies and services that benefit individuals with disabilities. If proven successful, this has the potential to improve the quality of life far beyond the initial project participants. Grantees need to publicly share the results of their project in one of the following ways:

oArticle/paper,

oPresentations, or

oOpen sourcing (making specifications of a device, app or program available for public use or modification).

Building Networks and Replicating Successful Models: DCF wants to foster collaboration and exchange among stakeholders serving the communication needs of Californians with disabilities, so that best practices can be shared and redundancy is avoided. 

DCF supports organizations in sharing successful programs or models with one or more partners. One of the collaboration partners needs to be designated as the primary applicant/grantee. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) of the partners involved is required. The project should share best practices, adapting them to geographically, demographically or culturally different settings, as needed. It is not a requirement that the program or model to be shared was previously funded by DCF, however, organizations applying need to be able to clearly demonstrate:

oHow the project/model has been successful,

oThe need for and benefit of replication,

oThat the organization has the capacity to support the replication, and Prospective partner organization(s).

DCF also supports projects that improve or expand existing stakeholder and professional networks (California-wide or regional), or intent to establish new networks. Network building may include information collection, outreach, identifying & piloting network activities, and implementation of a long term network strategy.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts range from $100,000 to $500,000.

Eligibility:  Eligible applicants include:

•Tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations as defined under Section 501(c)3 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code

•Programs that use a fiscal sponsor with 501(c)(3) tax exempt status

•Educational institutions

The applicant must be a community-based organization which has a physical location in California (not an on-line entity) and provide services which benefit people with disabilities in California.

Due Date: Letters of Intent must be submitted by August 9, 2017.

The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Accepting Applications for Improving Quality of Life for People Living with Paralysis

The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation’s Quality of Life Grants program provides funding to nonprofit organizations that mirror the Foundation’s mission by providing programs and services for individuals with paralysis (caused by spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, ALS, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, and other conditions) and their families and caregivers that foster independence, inclusion, and engagement in the community.

Grants are provided in three thematic areas:

  • Actively Achieving projects provide individuals with disabilities opportunities to participate in activities that engage their bodies and minds, including sports, arts, recreation, and education and employment initiatives.

  • Caring and Coping projects provide services that address the complex day-to-day health and personal issues for individuals living with disabilities, their families, and caregivers.

A successful Reeve Foundation Quality of Life grant is one where a modest grant is invested into a very specific part of a program or project that directly impacts the lives of people with paralysis and their families. Requests to support the launch of new initiatives or the expansion of existing projects that serve individuals with paralysis are encouraged. Funding priorities include projects that serve military/veterans and their families, diverse communities, and medically underserved areas.

Grant Amount: Grants of up to $25,000 are available.

Eligibility: Nonprofit organizations, municipal and state governments, school districts, recognized tribal entities, and other institutions such as community or veterans hospitals are eligible to apply.

Due Date: August 15, 2017
