SAMHSA logoThe Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment is accepting applications for FY 2019 Building Communities of Recovery. The purpose of this program is to mobilize resources within and outside of the recovery community to increase the prevalence and quality of long-term recovery support from substance addiction. These grants are intended to support the development, enhancement, expansion, and delivery of recovery support services (RSS) as well as promotion of and education about recovery. Programs will be principally governed by people in recovery from substance addiction who reflect the community served. Grantees may use funds to: build connections between recovery networks, between Recovery Community Organizations, and with other RSS, including the criminal justice system, employers, and housing services; reduce the stigma associated with drug/alcohol addiction; and conduct public education and outreach on issues relating to drug/alcohol addiction and recovery.

Applications are due by April 2. Learn more and apply.
