Grants to New York nonprofit community- and faith-based organizations in eligible counties for programs that assist pregnant women and new mothers with opioid dependency. Funding is intended for the creation of recovery and case-management services that help pregnant and postpartum women with opioid use disorders. Women will receive services during pregnancy and up to six months after giving birth. The goal of the program is to alleviate barriers to services for pregnant women with opioid use disorders through comprehensive care coordination, which will be implemented within the five major time frames when intervention can reduce potential harm of prenatal substance exposure: pre-pregnancy, prenatal, birth, neonatal, and early childhood.
The successful bidder must serve all of the target counties identified in one of the following regions:
- New York City: The Bronx, Kings County, New York, Queens, and Richmond
- Capital Region: Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Warren, and Washington
- North Country: Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, and St. Lawrence
- Western New York: Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans, Wyoming, and Monroe
Successful bidders will provide intensive case management, wraparound services, and recovery supports to a minimum of thirty (30) opioid-dependent pregnant women at one time (during pregnancy and up to six months after birth event), their infants, and families through the The Maternal Wraparound Program (M-WRAP). Intensive Case Managers will provide care coordination and warm hand-offs to appropriate service providers when necessary. Additionally, care coordination that addresses screening, early intervention, assessment, treatment and recovery supports will help to improve outcomes for women, their infants, and families. Peer Recovery Support Specialists will provide non-clinical assistance and recovery supports while maintaining follow-up with the women and their infants.
The total budget for the M-WRAP may include funding the supportive services team. Eligible expenses unique to the operation of M-WRAP include staff; office space; supplies; and equipment, including, a lap-top computer, and cell phones for use by staff.
