$3M Mobile Treatment & Telepractice Services Expansion for Addiction

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the availability of more than $3 million in funding to expand mobile treatment and telepractice services for addiction across New York State. This funding will help expand and enhance addiction services in underserved areas of the state, allowing more people to access this critical care. Governor Cuomo has made expanding these services to all counties a priority in 2020, as detailed in this year’s State of the State address. Funding for both initiatives is being provided through the federal State Opioid Response Grant and will be awarded through Requests for Applications administered by the New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports.
