Find Out More About NIH Funding for Addiction Research

  In September, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced plans for research in rural and remote populations for effective non-opioid interventions for chronic pain management. The NIH’s Helping to End Addiction Long-term (HEAL) initiative to speed scientific solutions to the national opioid public health crisis, is intending to commit $5.7M in FY2023 to this effort, which will result in five to six awards. The funding opportunity requires partnerships with health care systems or organizations and community partners and encourages links to key rural partners such as State Offices of Rural Health, State Rural Health Associations, and Area Health Education Centers.  On Monday, October 24 at 12.00 pm ET, NIH will hold a one-hour technical assistance webinar for applicants.
