This bill requires funding competitive grants to counties, and require counties receiving grants to use these funds for various purposes relating to the treatment of substance use disorders and the provision of medication-assisted treatment.
Per authorizing statute, “Medication-Assisted Treatment” (MAT) means the use of any United States Food and Drug Administration-approved medically assisted therapy to treat a substance use disorder, including opioid use disorder and alcohol use disorder, and that, whenever possible, is provided through a program licensed or certified by the State Department of Health Care Services. Authorizing legislation allows counties to use these grant funds in support of MAT initiatives in an in-custody setting, a post-release setting, or a combination of both.
Eligible applicants are California counties.
Authorizing legislation limits the use of grant funds to three target populations:
1) Individuals who are incarcerated in county detention facilities with substance use disorders,
2) individuals under criminal justice supervision* with substance use disorders and
3) justice-involved individuals** with substance use disorders.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Grant Proposals must be received by 5:00 P.M. (PST) on February 16, 2024.
Applications for the MAT Grant Program must be submitted through the BSCC Submittable Application portal.
Prospective applicants are asked (but not required) to submit a non-binding letter indicating their intent to apply.
Proposals selected for funding will be under contract agreement with the BSCC from May 1, 2024, to December 31, 2027. The term of the grant agreement includes a three-year service delivery period and an additional six months to finalize and submit the required Local Evaluation Report and financial audit. The service delivery period of the grant ends on June 30, 2027. After this date, only expenses associated with completion of the Local Evaluation Report and financial audit may be incurred (July 1, 2027 and December 31, 2027).
This RFP makes $10,000,000 available competitively to county applicants to implement medication-assisted treatment programs and applicable activities as listed in the Eligible Grant Expenditures section above.
Individual counties may request up to a maximum of $1,250,000 for the entire term of the grant agreement. Two or more counties may submit one collaborative proposal and request up to a maximum of $2,500,000 for the entire term of the grant agreement.
