Ohio's response to 21st Century Cures Act

Ohio will see an influx of $26 million in federal funding during 2017 to help fight the opioid epidemic through the 21st Century Cures Act. To secure up to $26 million a year for the next two years, OhioMHAS submitted a grant application through the State Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis Grants program during February 2017. States and territories are awarded funds through a formula based on unmet need for opioid use disorder treatment and drug poisoning deaths. Ohio was notified of its award on April 24, 2017.

Opportunities for grants and contracts will be announced on this page.

OhioMHAS leadership elected to focus on several core prin­ciples in the application, including: medication-assisted treatment; prevention; Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT); recovery supports; workforce devel­opment; and addressing secondary trauma among first responders (law enforcement, EMTs, fire personnel, etc.) Stakeholder input was solicited and received via a survey and webinar.
