The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), in partnership with the California Academy of Family Physicians, released this Request for Applications (RFA) for grants to implement the California Residency Program Collaborative. There will be 25 grants awarded of up to $70,000 each. The funds will be expended between January 1, 2023, and June 30, 2024.
The project aims to encourage California physician residency programs to increase the capacity to serve patients with a SUD, including stimulant use disorder and opioid use disorder. Applicants must include education, outreach, and treatment for patients experiencing SUD, with a particular focus on serving vulnerable populations, promoting harm reduction, addressing fentanyl, and increasing medication-assisted treatment services.
Applications are due January 31, 2023.
