Grants to New York service providers to address substance abuse in local communities. Funding is intended to respond to the opioid crisis by increasing access to medication and treatment and reducing overdose deaths through treatment, prevention, and recovery programs. Each region must identify gaps in addressing opioid and stimulant use disorder in their communities based on a needs assessment.
The SOR grant aims to address the opioid crisis by increasing access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) using the three FDA-approved medications for the treatment of opioid use disorder, reducing unmet treatment need, reducing opioid overdose-related deaths, and providing a comprehensive continuum of treatment, prevention, and recovery services to reduce the prevalence, incidence, and consequences associated with opioid use disorder (OUD) and stimulant use disorder.
Key to this approach is the use of a needs assessment to identify and prioritize gaps in services in the community related to opioid and stimulant use disorder; use of existing programs and resources to complement and enhance the services selected for funding; and the use of measures to inform program impact and change over time.
Each application submitted should include a proposed regional network that includes multiple counties in a geographic area that may take advantage of existing collaborative relationships with the exception of the five boroughs of New York City and Nassau and Suffolk Counties. By allowing providers and counties to define the region included in the application, existing relationships and resource sharing can be used to enhance the impact of SOR funding and reinforce continued collaboration. The five-county minimum may also encourage new or expanding partnerships that embrace a regional approach to services.
The applicant may choose to focus on one or more goal areas that are of specific interest to the region. The goal or goals must include a continuum of prevention, treatment, and recovery services in the proposed approach. Services proposed in each application must address an identified need in the region, explain how the services align with an OASAS overarching goal for the continuum of care, and demonstrate how existing programs and services complement or enhance the regional approach to care. SOR funding is targeted to opioid and amphetamine use and overdose.

At least one award per New York City borough, one each in Nassau and Suffolk counties, and as many additional awards as needed to demonstrate the use of SOR funding in every county throughout the rest of state.
The dollar amount available for each region or borough was calculated on population size and adjusted based on the opioid and stimulant disorder needs in each region. The approach also set a minimum $600,000 threshold per region to offset disparities incurred using a per capital distribution only.
