Opioid Project Funding Opportunities

Opioid Project Funding Opportunities

Through the NCACH’s Opioid Project, community stakeholders, law enforcement officials, clinical providers, educators, policy makers, tribes, behavioral health specialists, treatment providers, and social service agencies are coming together to create a comprehensive response to the opioid epidemic that involves prevention, treatment, overdose prevention, and recovery supports. 

Funding is available to partners through NCACH’s Medicaid Transformation efforts, and varies based on program and approach. There are different funding opportunities available throughout the year, so check back regularly to learn more.

NCACH’s Rapid Cycle Opioid Funding is available to community partners located in Chelan, Douglas, Grant, and Okanogan Counties who are interested in Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) prevention, treatment, overdose prevention, and recovery support services, especially to low-income populations. 

Funding cycles generally start every six month with applications being during the months of March and October.  See below for information on the current funding cycle. Individual award amounts will vary based on the scope of proposed project but generally range from $2,500 – $10,000

Funding for 2020 projects is now open. Learn more and apply by August 6th.

Naloxone (Narcan) Training and Distribution

The NCACH Governing Board has allocated $20,000 for Targeted Narcan (naloxone) Training and Distribution in 2019. At the guidance of the Regional Opioid Stakeholders workgroup, NCACH will distribute funding to allow local partners to buy and distribute Narcan.

Targeted Narcan Distribution is an evidence-based intervention strategy to reduce opioid overdose deaths. Narcan is an opioid antagonist that can quickly and safely reverse the potentially fatal effects of an opioid overdose. Targeted distribution programs seek to train and equip individuals who are most likely to encounter or witness an overdose – especially people who use drugs and first responders – with Narcan kits, which they can use in an emergency to save a life. By equipping these individuals with Narcan and training them to identify and respond to an overdose, the potential delay between the onset of an opioid overdose and the delivery of life-saving care can be reduced from hours to seconds. This is especially true in rural areas, where residents may experience longer EMS response times. Ready access of Narcan among members of the lay community is key for saving lives.

This opportunity is open to any non-profit or government agency located in and serving North Central Washington (Chelan, Douglas, Grant, and Okanogan Counties). Funding will be available only for the purchase of Narcan, at the public interest rate offered by Adapt Pharma ($75 per 2 dose box). Funding is not available to pay for staff time for providing the necessary training or registration/table fees at events.
