    Hello Association Executives!

    We want to make sure you're aware that in the federal appropriations agreement, the report language for the State Opioid Response (SOR) Grants has clarified that the SOR grants can be used to prevent and treat addiction to stimulants in addition to opioid response:

    "$1,500,000,000 shall be for State Opioid Response Grants for carrying out activities pertaining to opioids and stimulants undertaken by the State agency responsible for administering the substance abuse prevention and treatment block grant under subpart II of part B of title XIX of the PHS Act"

    This clarity and flexibility will allow states an opportunity to better respond to the challenges facing their communities.

    Please let me know if you have any questions, and have a great evening,

    Frankie
