Grant Description
Grants to USA and territories states, Tribes, and nonprofit organizations for peer recovery support programs for individuals suffering from substance use and mental health disorders. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support activities such as employment coaching, recovery coaching, linkages to housing, recovery housing services, and care navigation services.

The purpose of this program is to provide peer recovery support services to individuals with substance use disorders (SUD) or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders (COD), including those in recovery from these disorders. The program’s foundation is the value of lived experience of peers to assist others in achieving and maintaining recovery. These services, in conjunction with clinical treatment services, are an integral component of the recovery process for many people.

The population of focus includes individuals with SUD, COD, including those in recovery from such disorders, who are seeking long-term recovery support services (RSS) in their communities. The RSS they are seeking will be delivered by people who are in recovery with direct lived experience from SUD and who reflect the community being served.
