The Recovery Community Support Program is intended to foster the
participation of people in recovery, their family members, and other
allies (the recovery community) in the public dialogue about addiction,
treatment, and recovery, and to build their capacity to identify, develop,
and support treatment and recovery policies, systems, and services that
meet their needs as they define them. Funded projects will encourage and
facilitate participation by people in recovery and their family members in
the planning, design, delivery, and evaluation of addiction treatment and
recovery policies, systems, and services at the local, State, regional,
and national levels. They will also promote linkages among recovery
community members, and between the recovery community and service delivery
systems. In addition, they will develop and conduct public education to
help reduce the stigma associated with addiction, treatment, and recovery.
Applications for two separate Tracks will be funded under this Guidance
for Applicants (GFA).
- Track I solicits applications from
newly-formed or newly-forming recovery community organizations or
- Track II enables existing recovery community
organizations and facilitating organizations that have demonstrated
their capacity in recovery community organizing to expand or intensify
their current program, or to replicate their promising program model
in another setting.
