Description: As authorized by the SUPPORT Act (Public Law 115-271), the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is announcing the availability of up to $20 million in grant funds for the Support to Communities: Fostering Opioid Recovery through Workforce Development grant program to fund approximately 8 to 10 partnership grants, with awards ranging from $500,000 to $5 million. These grants intend to allow State workforce agencies (through Participating Partnerships led by local workforce development boards), outlying areas, or Tribal organizations to creatively align and deliver career, training, and supportive services that will best serve workers in their local areas impacted by the crisis. Grantees will engage community partners, such as local workforce development boards, employers or industry organizations, treatment and recovery centers, education providers, legal services and law enforcement organizations, and community-based and faith-based organizations, to address the economic effects of widespread substance misuse, opioid use, addiction, and overdose in significantly impacted service areas. These grant programs will serve workers, including dislocated workers, individuals with barriers to employment, new entrants to the workforce, or incumbent workers (employed or underemployed, a) who are personally affected by substance use disorders, defined as individuals who themselves or whose friends or family members have been directly or indirectly impacted by substance use disorders, or b) who seek to transition to professions that support individuals with a substance use disorder and need new or upgraded skills to better serve struggling or at-risk individuals.
