Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations to provide long-term substance abuse and addiction recovery services. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to promote the enhancement, development, delivery, and expansion of qualifying recovery support services (RSS). Funding may also be used for the promotion of and education about recovery.

SAMHSA’s grant funds must be used primarily to support direct services. The following direct services are required for all BCOR awards: 

  • Provision of Peer Recovery Support Services (PRSS) designed and delivered by individuals who have lived experienced with SUD and recovery. Examples of these services include peer mentors, recovery coaches, or recovery support specialists; 
  • Delivery of RSS that directly assist individuals and families to recover from SUD issues. These services may include social support, linkage to allied service providers (for example: local agencies who can assist with securing Medicaid, if appropriate, and other needed financial supports), and a full array of human services that facilitate recovery and wellness contributing to an improved quality of life (for example, housing linkages, childcare, vocational, educational, legal, and transportation services, etc.). The services may be provided prior to, during, and/or after treatment, or in lieu of treatment; and 
  • Collaboration with regional and local harm reduction2 community partner efforts currently underway as they intersect and relate to RSS that will encompass harm reduction elements.
