The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) is releasing a Request for Applications (RFA) to meet the opioid use disorder (OUD) and substance use disorder (SUD) needs of California’s tribal and urban Indian communities. Through this California Native Medications for Addiction Treatment (MAT) Network for Healing and Recovery, hereafter referred to as Native MAT Network, and formerly titled Learning Community: Tribal and Urban Indian Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for Opioid Use Disorder and Psychoactive Stimulant Use Disorder, DHCS continues to support increasing culturally competent OUD treatment services in California tribal and urban Indian communities.
This funding is particularly focused on tribal and urban Indian communities in California because of the racial and health disparities impacting substance use, prevention and treatment services. Awarded funds will support the planning and implementation of culturally responsive MAT services for opioid use disorder for tribal and urban Indian communities throughout the state.
Applications are due Monday, March 6, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. PST.
