Baystate Noble seeks grant proposals to address opioid and substance use orders

WESTFIELD –  Baystate Noble Hospital (BNH) received a FY 2020 legislative earmark to focus on prevention and treatment of opioid related substance use disorders in the Greater Westfield area. BNH has allocated $60,000 of the earmark funding for a request for proposal (RFP) community grants process to be administered in partnership with the hospital’s Community Benefits Advisory Council (CBAC).

Opioid and substance use disorders were identified as significant health needs in BNH’s 2019 community health needs assessment (CHNA). (for best results view the report using Google Chrome)

Proposals that increase access to prevention, treatment, recovery, and referrals for persons with opioid and substance use disorders in the BNH service area will be considered. Eligible organizations may request a one-time award up to $20,000. BNH recognizes that opioid and substance use disorders cannot be addressed in a silo.  Therefore,  proposals are encouraged to address the health and social needs posed by opioid and other substance use disorders, including, but not limited to, housing needs, access to healthy food, education, transportation, child care, behavioral health, chronic conditions and preventive health.   There will be an information session on Friday, May 8, 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. via Zoom to review the grant guidelines, application and review process, and answer questions that applicants may have.
