OUD Needs Assessment and Strategic Plan (C2345)

Grants and Contracts Details


The Kentucky Opioid Response Effort (KORE) is a grant initiative to provide a comprehensive targeted response to Kentucky's opioid crisis by expanding access to a full continuum of high quality, evidence-based opioid prevention, treatment, recovery and harm reduction services and supports in high-risk geographic regions of the state. Informed by data on populations most in need, the KORE projects will focus on four primary populations: 1) opioid overdose survivors, 2) pregnant and parenting women with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD), 3) justice-involved individuals with OUD, and 4) children, transition-age youth, and families impacted by OUD. University of Kentucky Research Foundation (UKRF), Kentucky Injury Prevention and Research Center (KIPRC) shall complete a state-wide needs assessment to identify and address the opioid disorder crisis in Kentucky. The state-wide needs assessment is a requirement of the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) KORE grant. KIPRC shall also complete a state-wide strategic plan specific to SAMHSA requirements to address the gaps in prevention, treatment and recovery services as identified in the state-wide needs assessment.
