The Foundation for Opioid Response Efforts will provide funding to address organizational capacity, skills development, and partnerships in community-based organizations (CBOs) working in the areas of opioid use disorder (OUD) and overdose mortality.

Activities may include, but are not limited to:

  • Conduct organizational assessments to identify needs and design a plan to increase organizational effectiveness that will help meet current challenges, overcome barriers, and result in intentional and productive enhancements in OUD service delivery
  • Enhance operational effectiveness to improve productivity and organizational functioning in areas such as administration, finance, human resources, and technology
  • Strengthen communication efforts to raise awareness about an organization's mission and attract attention and resources to the organization
  • Expand and stabilize resources to develop financial stability by increasing the CBO's ability to develop necessary resources and plan for longer-term sustainability, including the ability to apply for foundation, corporate support, and/or government funding streams
  • Strengthen and evaluate programming to enhance access and delivery of OUD services to more individuals and families in their communities
  • Foster collaborations with a broad range of allies to strengthen community engagement that results in stronger and expanded services

Eligible applicants include community-based organizations with 501(c)(3) status or a 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor. CBOs include organizations providing a range of social- and/or health-related services within a given geographic area, recovery community organizations, and community coalitions/partnerships.
