The Health Resources and Services Administration has announced a $20 million investment through the Addiction Medicine Fellowship program to increase access to board-certified addiction professionals who are practicing in underserved, community-based settings that integrate behavioral health with primary care services. HRSA will fund an estimated 25 grantees, who will receive up to $800,000 over a five-year period to foster a robust community-based clinical training of addiction medicine or addiction psychiatry physicians to provide opioid and other substance use prevention treatment, and recovery services. Letters of intent are due Jan. 6; applications are due Feb. 25. To explain more about the funding opportunity, HRSA will host a webinar Dec. 6 at 11 a.m. ET.
