This RFA is specifically for California tribal and urban Indian health entities interested in joining the California Native MAT Network for Healing and Recovery. This funding opportunity is intended for California tribal and urban Indian health entities who reflect the racial, ethnic, and cultural community they intend to serve, and have the capacity to develop culturally responsive MAT services that are tailored to their population of focus.
This funding is particularly focused on tribal and urban Indian communities in California because of the racial and health disparities impacting substance use, prevention, and treatment services. According to the 2019 statewide needs assessment, Addressing the Opioid Crisis in American Indian & Alaska Native Communities: A Statewide Needs Assessment, a need for culturally centered activities and treatments to prevent and treat OUD/SUD was identified.  The report highlighted that such services maintain the resilience of an individual through an emphasis of cultural connectedness, cultural services, positive role models, and availability of supportive services and programs.
Awarded funds will support the planning and implementation of culturally responsive MAT services for opioid use disorder for tribal and urban Indian communities throughout the state. Prospective applicants are encouraged to review the California Native MAT Network for Healing and Recovery Overview[ND1] more details.
