HRSA is accepting applications for payment from Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) employing buprenorphine waivered providers under a new program, the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA 2000) Waiver Training Payment Program.
The program gives FQHCs and RHCs the opportunity to apply for a $3,000 payment for each eligible employed provider who attained a DATA 2000 waiver on or after January 1, 2019. There is no application deadline, but funds are limited and will be paid on a first-come, first-served basis until all available funds are exhausted.
HRSA is collaborating with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to process these applications.
