Virginia Higher Education Opioid Consortium (VHEOC) – RFP 003 Homeless Grant Writing Support

November 4, 2019 by


The Rappahannock Area Community Services Board is seeking assistance in preparing a SAMHSA FY 20 Grant for the Benefit of Homeless Individuals. The purpose of the grant is to support the development of local community infrastructure that integrates substance use disorder treatment, housing services, and other critical services for individuals experiencing homelessness.


DBHDS receives a State Opioid Response block grant from SAMSHA. The VHEOC (composed of GMU, VT, ODU, and VSU with UVA as the fiscal agent) will use this source of funding for projects to support Community Services Boards (CSBs) throughout the state and to do projects as requested by the department. When there is a request from DBHDS or a CSB, the VHEOC will circulate the RFP to prospective investigators at the various universities. Dr. Driscoll will integrate and return proposals to the CSB or department. Multi-university responses are welcome.

It is the bidder’s responsibility to provide all specified materials in the required VHEOC form and format. Interested investigators should contact Dr. Driscoll for the template at
