The Virginia Opioid Abatement Authority Grants Committee met last month to review funding recommendations for FY25, noting a record number of proposal submissions this year. The NRV Recovery Ecosystem is pleased to announce the approval of the Year 2 Renewal package with a slight increase in funding totaling $3,526,202. This decision ensures the continuity of current programs and introduces new collaborative opportunities, including partnerships with three new agencies.

Newly funded initiatives include the development of a pilot program for public schools, expanded peer support services across the region, and enhanced on-demand transportation options. Regrettably, funding requests for housing vouchers, supportive housing, and treatment facility expansion were not approved for this cycle. However, the project leadership team remains steadfast in their commitment to these crucial elements of the recovery ecosystem and will actively pursue funding opportunities for them in the future.

We are in this together.
