ATR LogoApplications are Now Being Accepted for the Ohio Access to Recovery IV Award

OhioMHAS has learned that the State of Ohio has been awarded a three-year, $7 million Access to Recovery IV (ATR) grant award from The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to provide vouchers for recovery support services and treatment services to more than 4,300 criminal justice-involved adults and military services members. The grant period started May 1, 2015 and runs through April 20, 2018. 

In the past, ATR services have targeted mainly urban counties with the highest number of individuals returning home from state-operated prisons. Ohio’s grant application proposed ATR services in Cuyahoga, Franklin, Hamilton, Lorain, Montgomery, Stark and Summit counties. This is Ohio’s third ATR award (ATR II, ATR III, ATR IV) for a total of $36.6 million. Including clients to be served through the current award, Ohio will have provided services to more than 19,000 residents with the help of ATR funding. ATR will reimburse ATR approved, non OhioMHAS certified, community providers including faith based providers for recovery support services and OhioMHAS certified/licensed treatment facilities for treatment services  provided to ATR enrolled individuals.

If your agency is interested in applying to become an ATR provider please submit an application to your local alcohol and drug board. The application must be filled out in full and include all of the required documentation to be considered. If you have any questions please refer to the ATR Provider Handbook.
