Subject: From HRSA - New Federal Gov Grant for Academic Institutions, Community Colleges

Dear Laura,

I am writing on behalf of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), a federal government agency within the Department of Health and Human Services.

HRSA wanted to make you were aware of the Opioid Impacted Family Support Program<https://www.hrsa.gov/grants/find-funding/hrsa-20-014>, a new grant for eligible community colleges, among other entities, in your state.

Grant Eligibility
This grant will provide funding for State-licensed mental health nonprofit and for-profit organizations, including academic institutions, such as universities, community colleges and technical schools. The eligible institutions must be accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting agency.

Grant Purpose
Grant recipients will receive funding for training programs that expand the number of peer support specialists and other behavioral health-related paraprofessionals who are trained to work in interprofessional teams in providing services to children whose parents are impacted by opioid use disorders and other substance use disorders, and their family members who are in guardianship roles.

Deadline: Applications must be submitted by April 13, 2020.

Spread the Word: HRSA would appreciate your help distributing information to community colleges in your state through your newsletters, website, and other channels. If you would like content to distribute, please let me know and I will provide.
