DHCS Opioid Response Program

DHCS made $3.4 million in grants available to help improve patient care in the areas of substance use disorder (SUD), opioid use disorder, and addiction. Organizations can apply for grants of up to $70,000.

The Request for Application (RFA) issued by DHCS in partnership with the California Academy of Family Physicians, is for grants to implement the California Residency Program Collaborative, which is funded by State Opioid Response III dollars. The funds will be expended between January 1, 2023, and June 30, 2024.

RFA applications are due January 31, 2023

The project aims to encourage California physician residency programs to increase the capacity to serve patients with a SUD, including stimulant use disorder and opioid use disorder. Applicants must include education, outreach, and treatment for patients experiencing SUD, with a particular focus on serving vulnerable populations, promoting harm reduction, addressing fentanyl, and increasing medication-assisted treatment services.
