TOR Resource Page


Welcome Tribal Opioid Response grantees!

This is a resource page of training and technical assistance opportunities for groups that have already been awarded grants through the Tribal Opioid Response (TOR) Program. It contains resources that you will find helpful in planning and implementing your tribe's opioid response while also satisfying all SAMHSA grant requirements. We recommend reviewing each of the materials available here closely.

For an overview of the goals and objectives of the TOR program and its requirements, please view our orientation PowerPoint, "Grantee TA Orientation Meeting." A recording of this orientation meeting is also available here.

For basic information about your grant, you can refer to the static Excel document "FY 18 TOR GPO Grant Assignments."

The first step for grant recipients is to develop a strategic plan for their opioid response and submit it to their Government Program Officer (GPO) by November 30, 2018. Please review the Strategic Activities Planning Template for a step-by-step guide to making your strategic plan.

The National American Indian & Alaska Native Addiction Technology Transfer Center (NAIAN ATTC) will also be hosting several optional webinars before November 30 to guide grantees through their strategic planning process.

For those recipients who would like to refine their strategic plan after November 30, we will hold a technical assistance meeting. During this meeting we will present on medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and other evidence/experience-based practices for treating opioid use disorders. The date for this meeting is April 10-12, 2019 at Mystic Lake Resort and Casino, MN. You can learn more on our registration site.

For those of you who have started searching for a Project Director and need assistance developing a position description and interview guide, we have provided templates for you below.

If you have questions that are not related to training or technical assistance, please contact your Government Program Officer (GPO).

If you do have questions about training or technical assistance, please send an email to
