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.

Funds must be used to conduct one or more of the following activities:

  • 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
  • In coordination with the lead state agency responsible for a workforce investment activity or a local board, provide short-term prevocational training services and training services that are directly linked to the employment opportunities in the local area or the planning region

SAMHSA intends to make an equitable distribution of awards in terms of geography (including urban, rural and remote settings) and balance among populations of focus and program size. Preference will be given to projects located in states with the greatest need, based on the highest mortality rate related to substance use disorder.


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.
