The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2018 Targeted Capacity Expansion:  Medication Assisted Treatment - Prescription Drug and Opioid Addiction (Short Title:  MAT-PDOA) grants.  The purpose of this program is to expand/enhance access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) services for persons with an opioid use disorder (OUD) seeking or receiving MAT.  This program’s focus is on funding organizations and tribes/tribal organizations within states identified as having the highest rates of primary treatment admissions for heroin and opioids per capita and includes those states with the most dramatic increases for heroin and opioids, based on SAMHSA’s 2015 Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS).  The desired outcomes include:  1) an increase in the number of individuals with OUD receiving MAT 3) a decrease in illicit opioid drug use and prescription opioid misuse at six-month follow-up.

SAMHSA is accepting applications for $196 million to treat opioid use disorder through its Targeted Capacity Expansion: Medication Assisted Treatment-Prescription Drug Opioid Addiction Program (Short Title: MAT-PDOA) totaling up to $196 million over 3 years. The new funding will expand access to medication-assisted treatment for people with opioid use disorder. SAMHSA expects to fund up to 125 grantees up to $524,670 per year for up to 3 years.
