Sep 03, 2020

ARC is Accepting Applications for INvestments Supporting Partnerships In Recovery Ecosystems (INSPIRE) Initiative which focuses on recovery-to-work efforts as part of recovery ecosystem to address region's substance abuse crisis. The INvestments Supporting Partnerships In Recovery Ecosystems (INSPIRE), is a $10 million initiative to address the Region’s substance abuse crisis by creating or expanding a recovery ecosystem leading to workforce entry or re-entry. Awards made via the INSPIRE Initiative will support the post-treatment to employment continuum, which could include, among others, investments in healthcare networks that support substance abuse recovery professionals, recovery-focused job training programs, as well as initiatives designed to coordinate, or link, recovery services and training that support the recovery ecosystem, among others.

Letters of Intent (LOI) for implementation grants up to $500,000 and planning grants up to $50,000 under INSPIRE are due October 16, 2020. The deadline for final applications is November 13, 2020. Award announcements are anticipated to be made Spring 2021. Additional information and resources are available at arc.gov/SUD.
