Emergency Department Medication for Opioid Use Disorder Initiative

Modeled after evidence-based programs in California and Massachusetts, the purpose of this Emergency Department Medication for Opioid Use Disorder Initiative is to increase access to MOUD and support continuity of care for patients living with opioid use disorder (OUD), from emergency department visit to treatment maintenance in the community.

Participating hospitals receive implementation funding to

  1. Identify patients with OUD
  2. Begin MOUD during an emergency department encounter, and
  3. Support care continuity by connecting patients to outpatient MOUD services in the community via a hospital outpatient clinic or a community health care provider.

In addition to implementation funds, participating hospitals will also receive substantial technical assistance, including access to local clinical champions with experience implementing emergency department MOUD initiatives and peer-to-peer learning opportunities.

Awards are sourced from MDHHS dollars and will begin after October 1, 2021 and end on September 29, 2022.

We are not currently accepting grant applications; however, if your hospital is interested in learning and/or to be notified for future funding opportunities, please email
