Grants to West Virginia nonprofit and for-profit agencies to improve access to treatment and housing services for individuals with substance use disorder and opioid use disorder. Funding is intended to support services that reduce the negative effects of substance abuse, shorten the waiting list for recovery housing, and offer medication-assisted treatment.

The specific purpose of this AFA is to increase access to Recovery Housing and Recovery Supports for individuals with SUD and/or OUD within the state.

The overall expected outcomes for this AFA are:

  1. Increased access to Recovery Housing (that supports medications for opioid use disorder using the three FDA-approved medications for the treatment of opioid use disorder if required by the Funding Option);
  2. Reducing unmet recovery housing needs; and
  3. Reducing opioid overdose-related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment, and recovery activities for SUD and/or OUD (including prescription opioids, heroin, and illicit fentanyl and fentanyl analogs)

 The work of the Grantees funded by this AFA shall result in:

  1. Serving more clients with more effective SUD recovery services that will helpmitigate the negative impacts of substance use, including but not limited to theopioid epidemic and associated overdoses;
  2. Reducing or eliminating the waitlist for SUD recovery housing services for individuals with an OUD/SUD.

Funding is available via the following four options:

  • Option 1: Creation of new recovery housing.
  • Option 2: Creation of long-term (at least six months) recovery housing to serve pregnant women and women with children. 
  • Option 3: Creation of long term (at least six months) peer-supported recovery housing to serve individuals re-entering the community from the Corrections system. 
  • Option 4: Innovative, safe recovery housing for residents with complex medical conditions (e.g., HIV, Hepatitis, endocarditis) and SUD/OUD.
