Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training (BHWET) Program - Supplemental Funding: This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) solicits applications for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 competitive supplements to the Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training (BHWET) Program recipients. The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to provide two-year competitive supplement awards to improve access to quality opioid use disorder (OUD)1 and other substance use disorder (SUD)2 treatment. The program will increase the number of professionals and paraprofessionals trained to deliver behavioral health and primary care services as a part of an integrated, interprofessional team in a HRSA-supported health center3, also referred to in this NOFO as “health center4,” located in high-need and high demand areas5. Trainees will address the full scope of a patient's addiction, including the comprehensive services necessary to successfully treat OUD and other SUD using medication-assisted treatment (MAT)6. For purposes of this NOFO, high need and high demand areas are identified by two defined sources: County overdose rate where the health center is located is equal to or higher than the national average of 19.8 per 100,000 population[1],[2] Mental Health Automatic Facility Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSA) with a score of 16 or above[3] [1] https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/products/databriefs/db294.htm [2] https://www.drugabuse.gov/related-topics/trends-statistics/overdose-death-rates [3] https://datawarehouse.hrsa.gov/tools/analyzers/hpsafind.aspx
