Efforts to address the national opioid crisis through HRSA programs are summarized in a new webpage titled Opioid Crisis. Featured on this HRSA webpage are summaries of activities like new funding to HRSA Health Centers to address substance abuse and mental health services, use of telehealth to deliver opioid treatment, and training resources for providers.

New and upcoming federal funding opportunities to address opioid treatment include a SAMHSA funding opportunity Improving Access to Overdose Treatment (limited to FQHCs and select other entities) and upcoming funding from HRSA’s Federal Office of Rural Health Policy for grants to rural communities under the Rural Communities Opioid Response.
