The Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental
Health Services Administration has issued a NOFO for FY 2024 First
Responders-Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act.

Many of our communities are struggling with addiction and issues related
to opioids. There is $6.2 million in available funding for the Fiscal
Year 2024 through the First Responders-Comprehensive Addiction and
Recovery Act (FR-CARA) grant program. This initiative is designed to
support first responders and other relevant personnel by providing
training, resources for administering, and distributing naloxone and
other FDA-approved opioid overdose reversal medications or devices. A
significant focus of the program is on serving populations
disproportionately impacted by overdose, aiming to enhance emergency
responses to opioid-related incidents. This funding is part of a broader
effort by the Biden-Harris Administration to address the overdose and
mental health crises, emphasizing the importance of community-based
behavioral health services to promote positive outcomes and advance
health equity across the country.

If you are operating a community paramedic team or
crisis mobile team, and currently provide service and are developing a
system of care, this is a worthwhile grant.
