2021 Request for Applications – Hospital Overdose Prevention and Addiction Treatment Systems of Care (HOPATSC) Phase 1: Planning Grant
As opioid overdose fatalities reach unprecedented levels, continued funding and focus on Chicago hospital capacity to better serve people with an opioid use disorder (OUD) is both necessary and urgent. The Illinois Public Health Institute (IPHI) is seeking applications from West and South Side Chicago hospitals to participate in a capacity building program that seeks to strengthen transitions of care between hospitals and community-based MOUD providers. Funding support is provided by the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). IPHI is managing the program development, implementation, and grantee selection. This RFA originates out of IPHI’s 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) work under the Alliance for Health Equity (AHE) and the subsequent Hospital Opioid Treatment and Response Learning Collaborative (HOTR-LC) and Landscape Analysis projects.
