Opioid Epidemic Response Request for Proposals (RFP)

This purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to identify qualified organizations to respond to the opioid crisis through opioid epidemic response strategies, including prevention, treatment, recovery, and harm reduction. The goal of this approach is to fund projects that will have high impact, particularly for Wright County communities most disproportionately impacted by the opioid crisis.

Multiple applicants may be selected for funding contracts. Through this process, up to $500,000 could be awarded with individual projects receiving $5,000-$100,000*.
