Treatment, Recovery, and Workforce Support Grants (Short Title: Workforce Support) provides funding to implement evidence-based programs to support individuals in substance use disorder treatment and recovery to live independently and participate in the workforce. Award recipients must coordinate with tribes, tribal organizations, state and local workforce development boards, lead state agencies responsible for a workforce investment activity, and state agencies responsible for carrying out substance use disorder prevention and treatment programs. Projects should focus on equity for rural, tribal, and other underserved populations.

Required activities:

  • Determine the economic and workforce impacts associated with high rates of substance use disorder (SUD) and co-occurring disorders (COD)
  • Coordinate with and align statewide employment and training activities
  • Assist individuals in recovery from a substance use disorder to transition into the workforce by providing supports such as employment identification, vocational rehabilitation training, interview and job training, job placement, peer-to-peer training, professional certification, and transferable skill development
  • Provide trauma-informed services, including assessment and interventions for emotional, sexual, and physical abuse
  • Develop and implement outreach and referral pathways to engage all demographic groups within the community
  • Hire case managers, care coordinators, providers of peer recovery support services, or other professionals, as appropriate, to provide services that support treatment, recovery, and rehabilitation, and prevent relapse, recidivism, and overdose, including:
    • The development and strengthening of daily living skills
    • Counseling, care coordination, and other services, as appropriate, to support recovery from substance use disorders
  • Implement or utilize innovative technologies which may include the use of telemedicine

Eligible applicants are nonprofit entities that provide treatment or recovery services for individuals with substance use disorders. Applicants must partner with one or more local or state stakeholders which may include local employers, community organizations, the local workforce development board, local and state governments, and tribes or tribal organizations to support recovery, independent living, and participation in the workforce.
