Funding Opportunity: Applying Data to Address the Opioid Crisis

The Helping to End Addiction Long-term (HEAL) Initiative is an aggressive, trans-agency effort to speed scientific solutions to stem the national opioid public health crisis, led by the National Institutes of Health.

A new set of interrelated grant funding opportunities will create the HEAL Data2Action  Program, a coordinated effort to promote the synthesis and real-world application of existing data to guide and monitor improvements in service delivery to prevent or treat opioid use disorder and pain. ​​

Project examples can include conducting focus groups with patients and their families to assess clinical interventions or barriers to treatment access.

Collectively, these projects will address gaps in the delivery of evidence-based practices in each of the four pillars of the U.S. Health and Human Services' Overdose Prevention Strategy: primary prevention, harm reduction, treatment of opioid use disorder, and recovery support.

The due dates to apply for funding are March 10 and March 25, 2022. Read full details.

Need help or have questions? A technical assistance webinar for applicants to the Data2Action initiative will be held on Monday, January 24, 2022 at 1 p.m. CST. Registration is required. Learn more and register.
