Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA state and local government agencies and tribal agencies and organizations for resources and training to enable first responders to administer opioid overdose treatments. Required registrations may take up to six weeks to complete. Rural high-need communities will be given preference.

The purpose of this program is to allow first responders and members of other key community sectors to administer a drug or device approved or cleared under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act for emergency treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose. Recipients will train and provide resources to first responders and members of other key community sectors at the state, tribal, and local governmental levels on carrying and administering a drug or device approved or cleared under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act for emergency treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose. Recipients will also establish processes, protocols, mechanisms for referral to appropriate treatment and recovery communities, and safety around fentanyl, carfentanil, and other dangerous licit and illicit drugs.

For the purposes of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA), first responders include firefighters, law enforcement officers, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, or other legally organized and recognized volunteer organizations that respond to adverse opioid related incidents.

FR-CARA grant funds must be used primarily to support the following activities:

- Make a drug or device approved or cleared under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act available for emergency treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose available to be carried and administered by first responders and members of other key community sectors;
- Train and provide resources for first responders and members of other key community sectors on carrying and administering a drug or device approved or cleared under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act for emergency treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose;
- Train and provide resources for first responders and members of other key community sectors on safety around fentanyl, carfentanil, and other dangerous licit and illicit drugs to protect themselves from exposure to such drugs and respond appropriately when exposure occurs;
- Establish processes, protocols, and mechanisms for referral to appropriate treatment and recovery communities, and safety around fentanyl, carfentanil, and other dangerous licit and illicit drugs. To facilitate the referral processes, you may hire an outreach coordinator or establish a team to connect individuals receiving opioid overdose reversal drugs to follow-up services; and
- Form or join an established advisory council that meets the requirements of the grant. If you choose to join an established advisory council, you must establish a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the existing council that ensures that the FR-CARA requirements will be met.

SAMHSA’s FR-CARA grants may also support the following types of activities:

- Collaborate with health care providers to educate them on overdose dangers, and recommend that they consider providing resources to overdose victims and families, including information on treatment and recovery.
- Provide public education on any state “Good Samaritan” laws, such as those that permit bystanders to alert emergency responders to an overdose or to administer FDA-approved overdose reversal drugs without fear of civil or criminal penalties.
