Opioid Settlement Fund Community Grant Program

CLOSED October 11, 2023

A new funding opportunity is available for South Dakota-based organizations working to abate and alleviate the impacts of the opioid crisis and co-occurring substance use challenges in South Dakota communities. As you may be aware, over the next 18 years South Dakota will be receiving funding from the National Settlement Agreement involving a number of pharmaceutical companies.  This funding is split between what is called the statewide share and the localized share. Department of Social Services in partnership with the Opioid Abuse Advisory Committee is utilizing 25% of the statewide share of the National Opioid Settlements to fund this grant program. 

Allowable activities must align with the Approved Uses for the Settlement Funds.
Please share this opportunity with your community-based partners. 

Applications are currently being accepted online, which can be accessed on the web page linked below. A FAQ document, budget template, and notes on preparing to apply are also available.
