The organizers of the program reckon that through the leveraging of the strengths, the pace of grant-funded medications development for SUDs will be substantially accelerated. As a result, the organizers encourage the proposals to be submitted under this program to focus at any point along the drug development continuum.
The initiative is also inspired by the fact that there is presently no FDA-approved medications for the treatment of cocaine, methamphetamine, or cannabis use disorders. To this regard, the NIH and NIDA hope that the results of the program will accelerate medication development, foster collaborative ventures between entities such that each offers financial resources, in-kind resources, and/or expertise toward the development of safe and effective medications for SUDs.
To support this program, the NIH and NIDA are willing to administer funds in the amount of $2,000,000 per year for a project that could last for up to 3 years.
The institutions and organizations who will be deemed eligible to take part in the program are the following:
a) Higher Education Institutions such as Public and Private Institutions of Higher Education
b) Nonprofit Organizations
c) For-profit Organizations Such as Small Businesses
d) State Governments, County Governments, City or Township Governments, Special District Governments, and Indian/Native American Tribal Governments
e) Independent School Districts, Public Housing Authorities/Indian Housing Authorities, Native American Tribal Organizations, and Faith-based or Community-based Organizations
