Why Federal Grants Could Be A Source For Addiction Treatment Center Funding
With many addiction treatment centers today challenged with limited working capital, reduced insurance reimbursements, and heightened regulations, alternative forms of funding such as federal grants may be available to treatment centers who have maintained a history of ethical operation. Multiple government agencies have set aside hundreds of millions of dollars in federal grant monies to help battle addiction, and with the recent opioid addiction pandemic, there couldn’t be better time to investigate this avenue of funding.
Grant procurement and awarding is a very specialized area that not only requires an expertise in grant writing but also engaging the right firm that has both the experience and relationships in place to ensure your grant request has the highest probability of getting funding. Typically this firm is a federal lobbyist who has a long history and track record of getting funding for their clients. Despite the bad publicity and “drain the swamp” movement from conservatives, lobbyists play a critical role and conduit between the private and public sectors.
