The OneOhio Recovery Foundation saw a busy day on March 4, 2024. The Foundation announced three regional information sessions, released the 2024 Regional Grant Request for Proposals (RFP), opened applicant registration for the grant portal, and announced additional resources for applicants.

Information Sessions: Regions 1, 2, 7, and 17

The three regional information sessions are scheduled to take place in Region 1 (Franklin County) on April 11, Region 2 (Hamilton County) on March 15, Region 7 (Trumbull and Mahoning Counties) on March 18, and Region 17 (Ottawa, Wood, Hancock, Hardin, Sandusky, Seneca, Wyandot, and Crawford Counties) on April 22. These sessions will provide an opportunity for anyone to learn more about the 2024 Regional Grant Cycle. Interested parties can sign-up to attend here.

2024 Regional Grant Request for Proposals

With the release of the 2024 Regional Grant Request for Proposals (RFP), prospective applicants should begin reviewing the document and registering for the grant portal. While the RFP is fairly standard—containing information about award amount, length, eligible projects, and so much more—there are two bits of information worth highlighting.The first is the regional funding priorities. As previously reported by Community Solutions, some regions have decided to establish funding priorities while others have decided against selecting their own funding priorities. The RFP is the first time that we can see what each region is prioritizing, if they have decided to prioritize certain projects over others, and the table below illustrates the funding priorities of each region.RegionCounties2024 Funding PrioritiesRegion 1FranklinOpen to all ideasRegion 2HamiltonTreatment & Healthcare Services, Criminal Legal System, Recovery Supports, and PreventionRegion 3CuyahogaTreatment & Healthcare Services, Intervention & Crisis Support, Recovery Supports, Services for Impacted Children & Families, and OtherRegion 4LucasCriminal Legal System, Recovery Supports, Prevention, and Services for Impacted Children & FamiliesRegion 5SummitOpen to all ideasRegion 6StarkOpen to all ideasRegion 7Trumbull & MahoningRecovery Supports and PreventionRegion 8MontgomeryTreatment & Healthcare Services, Intervention & Crisis Support, Criminal Legal System, and PreventionRegion 9Adams, Brown, Fayette, Highland, Pickaway, Pike, Ross, & SciotoOpen to all ideasRegion 10Athens, Gallia, Hocking, Jackson, Lawrence, Meigs, & VintonTreatment & Healthcare Services, Intervention & Crisis Support, Recovery Supports, Prevention, and Workforce DevelopmentRegion 11Belmont, Carroll, Columbiana, Harrison, Holmes, & JeffersonRecovery Supports and PreventionRegion 12Coshocton, Guernsey, Monroe, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, Perry, & WashingtonTreatment & Healthcare Services, Prevention, and Recovery SupportsRegion 13Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake, & PortageCriminal Legal System, Recovery Supports, and Workforce DevelopmentRegion 14Butler, Clark, Clermont, Clinton, Greene, Madison, & WarrenOpen to all ideasRegion 15Allen, Auglaize, Champaign, Darke, Logan, Mercer, Miami, Preble, & ShelbyOpen to all ideasRegion 16Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert, & WilliamsOpen to all ideasRegion 17Crawford, Hancock, Hardin, Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca, Wood, & WyandotOpen to all ideasRegion 18Delaware, Fairfield, Knox, Licking, Marion, Morrow, Tuscarawas, & UnionPrevention and Recovery SupportsRegion 19Ashland, Erie, Huron, Lorain, Medina, Richland, & WayneTreatment & Healthcare Services, Intervention & Crisis Support, Recovery Supports, Prevention, Services for Impacted Children & Families, and Workforce DevelopmentThe other aspect of the RFP that I want to draw attention to is the grant recipient selection process as it is imperative for applicants to know the process their proposal will go through.

  1. Registration and Compliance. All applicants must register in the grant portal prior to applying and pass a compliance check. Registration opened on March 4.
  2. Apply in Grant Portal. All registered organizations must apply for funding within the grant portal. Application period begins on April 2 and closes May 3.
  3. Regional Review. Regional Grant Review Committees will review and recommend funding awards within their respective regions.
  4. Expert Panel Review. The Expert Panel will ensure proposals are pursuant with the Ohio Abatement Strategies and Approved Purposes while also confirming alignment with evidenced-based practices.
  5. OneOhio Grant Oversight Committee Review. The OneOhio Grant Oversight Committee will review the regional recommendations and Expert Panel input prior to providing funding recommendations to the full OneOhio Board of Directors.
  6. OneOhio Board of Directors Approval. The OneOhio Board of Directors must approve all grant funding awards through a vote. After approval, all grantees must enter into a Grant Agreement with the Foundation to receive the awarded funds.
The OneOhio Grant Oversight Committee will review the regional recommendations and Expert Panel input prior to providing funding recommendations to the full OneOhio Board of Directors.

The Foundation recently announced two new resources to support applicants as they prepare their funding requests. This includes the Impact Academy Webinar Series and the Grant Applicant Training. These new resources for applicants are in addition to the two previous online resources that went live last month, which included the grant portal and the regions webpages.

Impact Academy Webinar Series

There are three Impact Academy Webinars scheduled and each one focuses on a different abatement strategy. The first webinar on Recovery Housing took place on March 5 and provided information on recovery housing in Ohio and how it relates to the available settlement funds. The next webinar is scheduled for March 11 with a focus on Recovery Supports and the final scheduled webinar on Prevention will take place on March 20.Overall, the webinars will provide examples of services and programs that are consistent with the Ohio Opioid Abatement Strategies, an overview of and where to learn more about the specific abatement strategy, and evidence that supports the strategy’s effectiveness. Interested parties can register for the Recovery Supports webinar here, for the Prevention webinar here, and if one is unable to attend, all webinars will be posted on the Foundation’s website.

There are two identical training courses scheduled with the first on April 8 at 10:00am and the other on April 12th at 12:00pm.

Grant Applicant Trainings

The Grant Applicant Trainings will take place following the launch of the 2024 Regional Grant application on April 2, 2024, and will walk potential applicants through the grant portal and answer questions related to the application. There are two identical training courses scheduled with the first on April 8 at 10:00am and the other on April 12th at 12:00pm. Those wishing to attend the first training can register here and here for the later training. Interested parties should also make note of the application window, which will open in the grant portal on April 2, 2024, and note that all applications are due in the grant portal by 11:59pm Eastern on May 3, 2024.As regions embark on the process of determining recommendations to the Board regarding the allocation of funds within their specific regions, The Center for Community Solutions encourages regions to engage in a thoughtful process when making recommendations with this one-time funding. Community Solutions will continue to monitor Regional board meetings and the Foundation’s progress in addressing the opioid epidemic as the Foundation’s grantmaking official begins.
