In partnership with the MHA Keystone Center, the Michigan Opioid Partnership and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan (CFSEM) has launched an Emergency Department (ED) Medication for Opioid Use Disorder Initiative and funding opportunity for Michigan hospitals. The initiative aims to increase access to evidence-based medication for opioid use disorder and support the transition to long-term, office-based treatment upon discharge. More information about the initiative is available in an online video.
Applications are now being accepted on a rolling basis until April 22. Grant funds are limited and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
All Michigan hospitals are now eligible to apply, regardless of the number of patients treated annually for opioid-related overdoses. If two or more hospitals from the same system are interested in applying, they are encouraged to contact the CFSEM to discuss the possibility of applying as a system. Eligibility for grant funding is outlined as follows:
- Hospitals with more than 100 encounters annually are eligible for technical assistance and up to $150,000.
- Hospitals with less than 100 encounters annually are eligible for technical assistance and up to $75,000.
