Tribal Opioid Response Grants (Short Title: TOR) provide funding to address the opioid crisis in tribal communities by increasing access to culturally appropriate and evidence-based treatment, including medication-assisted treatment. The overall goal of the program is to reduce unmet treatment needs and opioid overdose-related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment, and/or recovery activities for opioid use disorder (OUD).

Required activities include:

  • Complete a comprehensive strategic plan, based on the most current epidemiological data for the tribe, to address the gaps in prevention, treatment, and recovery identified by the tribe
  • Implement workforce development activities to ensure that individuals working in tribal communities are well versed in strategies to prevent and treat opioid misuse
  • Develop effective prevention strategies and
  • Develop strategies to purchase and disseminate naloxone and provide training on its use to first responders and other tribal members
  • Implement service delivery models that enable the full spectrum of treatment and recovery support services that facilitate positive treatment outcomes and long-term recovery
  • Implement community recovery support services
  • Provide assistance to patients with treatment costs and develop other strategies to eliminate or reduce treatment costs for under- and uninsured patients
  • Provide treatment transition and coverage for patients reentering communities from criminal justice settings or other rehabilitative settings

Eligible applicants are tribes, tribal organizations, urban Indian organizations, and consortia of tribes and tribal organizations.
