Webinar: Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program FY 2018: Funding Opportunity for Tribes
The Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) was signed into law on July 22, 2016. As part of CARA, the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program (COAP) solicitation offers states, local governments, and Indian tribes six funding categories to expand outreach, treatment, and recovery efforts to individuals impacted by the opioid epidemic. In only its second year, this solicitation offers immense new funding opportunities for tribes to design and enhance their own systems pursuant to community needs. This webinar will overview the FY 2018 solicitation and highlight the three categories for which tribes are eligible to apply.
