Temporary Hiatus-Recovery Support Scholarships (OIF) effective - April 28, 2023
The Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health (DSAMH) is issuing a temporary deferment of the recovery support scholarships (formerly under the Opioid Impact Fee fund) effective Friday, April 28, 2023, 12:00am EST due to reaching the maximum capacity of funding available. During this pause, applications will not be accepted or processed.
It is DSAMH's goal to re-launch this service at the beginning of State Fiscal Year 2024 (approximately July 1, 2023). This temporary program pause will allow DSAMH to modify program guidelines and manage application volume. We ask that all remain patient over the next few months because these changes are necessary for program sustainability and are in the best interest of those we serve.
All previously approved applications prior to April 28, 2023, shall remain honored.
