In 2018, NASADAD developed a timeline of the State Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis (STR) and State Opioid Response (SOR) grant programs. The timeline outlines key dates, such as: when grants were authorized; when Congress appropriated funds; when funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) were released; funding award periods for States for each of the grant programs; and more. NASADAD has updated the timeline to reflect two recent developments:
- In December 2019, Congress appropriated level funding of $1.5 billion for the State Opioid Response (SOR) grant program, and noted that “stimulant abuse” would be an allowable use of SOR funds in FY 2020.
- In February 2020, the Administration released its proposed budget for FY 2021 and included a request of $1.585 billion for SOR, an increase of $85 million compared to FY 2020.
