Community Education and Outreach Initiative CARES Funding Guidance and Application
Background and Purpose

The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services has released this request for applications (RFA) with the intent of awarding up to $50,000,000 per year to Boards, which will in turn support substance abuse prevention, treatment and recovery programs in their communities. County boards are encouraged to fund services and supports incorporated in their annual community plans addressing the boards’ vision to establish a culturally competent system of care and the boards’ work to achieve that vision.
Boards are encouraged to demonstrate that they are addressing a Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC) meeting the following criteria: “The central focus of a ROSC is to create an infrastructure or “system of care” with the resources to effectively address the full range of substance use problems within communities. The specialty substance use disorder field provides the full continuum of care (prevention, early intervention, treatment, continuing care and recovery) in partnership with other disciplines, such as mental health and primary care, in a ROSC.”

The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) is pleased to announce that the Specialized Docket Subsidy Project has two separate funding opportunities available to specialized dockets not currently receiving specialized docket subsidy funding or drug court grant funding from the Department and must target addiction and/or mental health disorders. One Request for Applications (RFA) has been made available for specialized dockets receiving final certification after July 1, 2019 and not previously certified. The other RFA is for specialized dockets which received final certification before July 1, 2019 and operational specialized dockets seeking re-certification.
The purpose of these funds is to offset the payroll costs for specialized dockets staff members. These funds can also be used to pay for clinical services provided by OhioMHAS certified addiction and/or mental health providers, medication assisted treatment (MAT) medications, urinalysis and recovery supports.
The funding will be available for the periods of SFY 2021 - July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021. These funds can be retroactively applied for allowable expenses incurred on or after July 1, 2020. Please note: Funds supporting this project are granted based on an estimate of state and federal funds for mental health and addiction services in Ohio. Should funding be reduced below an estimated level, the amount of funding may be reduced or terminated per written notice to the applicant by OhioMHAS.
