Kansas State Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis (KS Opioid STR) RFP

 The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to select four sub-awardees to develop and provide opioid misuse prevention, treatment, and recovery support services for the purpose of addressing the opioid abuse crisis within the state of Kansas. Each sub-awardee will create implementation plans to meet the specific needs, gaps, and access concerns, as well as risk and protective factors specific to their geographic, demographic and cultural differences.

Sub-awardees will:

  • Reduce the number of persons with Opioid Use Disorders (OUD) and the number of opioid overdose-related deaths through the provision of primary and secondary prevention, treatment, and recovery activities;
  • Supplement, not supplant, other Federal or State funding for prevention, treatment, and recovery activities;
