Foundation for Opioid Response Efforts (FORE)


FORE, the funder of this project, is a private, national organization focused on contributing sustainable and scalable solutions to the opioid crisis, FORE awarded $10.1 million in grants to 19 organizations across the country, supporting projects that address access to opioid use disorder treatment and services in urban, rural, minority, tribal, and low-income communities.   Recognizing the urgency of the crisis, FORE wanted to inspire and accelerate action toward ending the overdose epidemic by convening and supporting stakeholders advancing patient-centered, evidence-based solutions to opioid use disorder and overdose.  

In response to its first request for proposals, FORE received responses from 443 organizations from 46 states. Our project was one of 19 projects selected after rigorous review by a panel of 50 independent experts from across the country. They include several projects that are developing or expanding models to better deliver treatment services to adults, adolescents, pregnant or parenting women, justice-involved persons, and uninsured populations. Other funded projects are addressing payment and regulatory policies to increase access to treatment or provide telehealth, mobile, and rural hospital services.
