Trillium is allocated $1,718,685 on a one-time basis by DMH/DD/SAS for the purposes outlined in the allocation letter. These SABG ARPA funds may be used for dates of service July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023. Public Law 117-2, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA), signed by President Biden on March 11, 2021, directed the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to provide additional funds to support states through Block Grants to address the effects of the COVID -19 pandemic for Americans with mental illness and substance use disorders.
ARPA allocated $1.5 billion each for Mental Health Block Grant (MHBG) and Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block (SABG) grants to the states. North Carolina received a total of $36,420,651 under the SABG. The awarded funds must be used for activities consistent with the SABG program requirements. The SABG program is designed to provide funds to States, Territories, and one Indian Tribe for the purpose of planning, implementing, and evaluating activities to prevent and treat substance use disorder (SUD). States may use this supplemental COVID-19 Relief funding to: (1) promote effective planning, monitoring, and oversight of efforts to deliver SUD prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery services; (2) promote support for providers; (3) maximize efficiency by leveraging the current infrastructure and capacity; and (4) address local SUD related needs during the COVID pandemic. North Carolina’s approved proposal includes prevention, treatment, and recovery initiatives with focus on rural and under-served communities and marginalized populations, as well as workforce development
Additionally, Senate Bill 105 designated $8,000,000 of these funds “to expand the MAT Community Supervision pilot program, a program for individuals recently released from prison and on probation. DPS, in conjunction with DMHDDSAS, shall select at least five counties to participate in the expanded pilot program that represent tier one and tier two counties with the highest need.” To that end, staff from both Divisions have analyzed county data for tier one and tier two counties, including substance use-related supervision violations, prevalence of opioid use, uninsured status, overdose, and ED visits, as well as resources for opioid use disorder treatment, and have selected the following counties in Trillium’s service area to receive funding to support this initiative:
- New Hanover
The legislation requires that funds for this Community Supervision Medication Assisted Treatment pilot be tracked separately. In order to accomplish this, a new benefit plan has been created, ASCSP (Adult Substance Use Community Supervision Population), to track the expenditure of funds and enrollment of consumers. Fund codes within DMH/DD/SAS have also been established to link the funding source to the benefit plan. The ASCSP benefit plan is defined as the following:
- Adults who are ages 18 and over with a primary opioid use disorder who are currently under Community Supervision, defined as being under state probation, parole or post-release supervision. AND
- Who would benefit from assessment, initiation, engagement, treatment (including medication assisted treatment), continuity of treatment services, and/or supports for relapse prevention and recovery stability, AND
- Who are not currently being served through another funding source, such as ASOUD or ASCDR.
Providers must be a non-profit and currently enrolled in the Trillium state-funded network. Providers who offer a robust continuum of SUD services throughout Trillium’s coverage area will be given a higher priority to adequately meet the needs of this population for this expansion. Proposal for this funding must be received using this format no later than September 30, 2022, 5:00pm.
Trillium has been allocated $251,792 in Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant (SAPTBG) funds by DMH/DD/SAS on a one-time basis for nicotine replacement therapy for uninsured individuals in substance use disorder treatment settings, so they experience no barriers to accessing evidence-based treatment for nicotine withdrawal.
The funding can be used for the following:
- Coordinating with a vendor to provide over-the-counter nicotine replacement therapies (NRT) to provider organizations to be kept onsite for uninsured patients with substance use disorder receiving the following services, including, but not limited to facility-based crisis, non-hospital medical detox, detox social setting, supervised living- low, supervised living- moderate, group living- low, group living- medium, group living high, and substance abuse halfway houses.
- Ensuring there are no barriers to accessing medications by promoting the utilization of NRT medications in the abovementioned settings, as well as utilization of Quitline services. Promotion includes, but is not limited to:
- Educating providers about how to access NRT for members, offering or promoting training in evidence-based tobacco use treatment for staff, educating provider agencies on connecting clients with Quitline services for additional support and medications.
- Working with inpatient and residential settings to ensure standing orders or doctor’s orders from referring providers are in place in both inpatient and residential settings, so that there is no gap between a patient developing nicotine withdrawal and receiving adequate medication to treat that withdrawal. NC DHHS’ standing order that allows pharmacists to dispense NRT is a useful example of an evidence-based algorithm for dosing over-the-counter combination NRT through a standing order. o In residential settings, NRT provided through these funds is meant to serve as a bridge to treat nicotine withdrawal until the patient is connected to another community source (such as QuitlineNC, a local health department, etc.).
- Meet with or communicate with DMH/DD/SAS and DPH staff as needed to troubleshoot any problems with providers or patients accessing NRT.
- Submit a semi-annual demographic report with age, gender, race, and ethnicity data for on or around January 20 and July 20 of each year of the funding.
- Monitor expenditure of these funds and work with DMH/DD/SAS and Division of Public Health (DPH) staff to reallocate funds as necessary to ensure funds are spent cost effectively and maximize access to nicotine replacement therapy for members.
Eligible providers must have be a non-profit and have a contract with Trillium Health Resources.
Current Service Needs

Trillium as a partner in the NC Child and Family Improvement Initiative is developing a statewide network of child treatment providers to ensure that children and families engaged with DSS have continuity of care without delay or interruption when moving from one area of North Carolina to another. Trillium currently has providers located throughout NC to best meet the needs for our members, especially members who are children engaged with DSS for foster care programs, kinship placements or adoption.
Effective 7-25-22 Trillium will expand our existing statewide Network through an Open Enrollment for Child Treatment Providers statewide to ensure that children and adolescents have access to the services they need across NC.
Provider can apply by clicking the link below. Specific services open for recruitment are detailed on the Application Form in the link provided.
Providers must be enrolled and credentialed with NC Tracks for NC Medicaid and meet service eligibility requirements, including licensure and accreditation, when applicable.
For providers who do not want to join an LME/MCO network, all LME/MCOs are offering out-of-network agreements for community-based and non-hospital services. While the NC DHHS directs reimbursement for these services to be 90% of the Medicaid rate, the LME/MCOs have agreed to pay at least 100% of the Medicaid rate for these services to strengthen statewide network and service capacity.
We encourage you to contract with each LME/MCO to maximize statewide resources and service access for children and adolescents. For more information about becoming an in-network provider, please use the following links:

Trillium is accepting proposals to support opioid remediation programs throughout the 28 county coverage area. These funds are restricted to the following uses:
- To purchase low-cost naloxone and other supplies like lock boxes and distribute them free of charge to harm reduction programs located in the 28 counties covered by Trillium for the purpose of reducing the number of opioid-related overdoses and deaths.
- To purchase all forms of medications approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of opioid use disorder and distribute them free of charge to jails located in the 28 county coverage area.
- To fund community-based opioid treatment programs located in the 28 counties that provide opioid agonist treatment or facilitate the provision of opioid agonist treatment from other providers.
- To purchase equipment for local opioid use disorder treatment programs located in the 28 counties to enable rapid analysis of opioids and other drugs causing overdose and overdose related deaths.
Trillium is focused on increasing health equity and will prioritize funding in counties that are Tier I and programs operated by historically underutilized providers. Tier I counties include Columbus, Bladen, Jones, Hyde, Tyrrell, Washington, Martin, Bertie, Pasquotank, Chowan, Hertford, Northampton, Halifax and Nash. Trillium will focus resources on programs that address marginalized populations to include the uninsured and underinsured, people with disabilities, black, indigenous or people of color and areas that experience health care disparities throughout our 28 covered counties. For example to start a needle exchange program or purchase needles and sharp deposits.
Trillium is requesting proposals from our counties, community partners, healthcare providers, schools and universities, and faith based communities to provide these options to the people who live, work and play in our 28 counties. Interested parties should submit a proposal that follows the above funding restrictions to Cindy.Ehlers@TrilliumNC.org and in the subject line include, “RE: Opioid Remediation Request for Funding” by September 16, 2022 at 5:00 p.m.
Please include the following in your written proposal:
- Specific county, counties, or cities within Trillium’s 28 counties the funding will support.
- Specific area(s) in 1-4 (above) for which you are requesting funding. If you are requesting funding of medications for jails, please include a letter of support from the local sheriff.
- Please also include the amount of funding you are requesting along with information supporting estimates. For example, if you are going to propose that you will purchase 500 Naloxone kits or other supplies and distribute them free of charge include an estimate for the number of naloxone kits (or other supplies) and the estimated price from the vendor you plan to use.
- If you are going to purchase equipment for local opioid treatment programs that enable rapid analysis of opioids and other drugs causing overdose related deaths please attach the estimate from the vendor for the equipment
- The funds are one time funds so it is not recommended to use them for staffing. Proposals that include staffing will not receive a high priority for ongoing staffing costs. Proposals that include staffing costs in the request for funding must demonstrate that the staff do not serve ANY other funding source other than individuals without insurance or if staff costs are included they should be based on the % these funds needed to cover the % of the position for the service to this population only. This funding cannot be used to subsidize staffing for programs that already bill Trillium or any other health plan in NC for private insurance, Medicaid, Medicare or State dollars or receive non-ucr state funding or any kind or who receive funding from county or local municipalities for the same purpose. Proposals that do not include this information will not be reviewed or considered to assure that Trillium is a good steward of these settlement dollars. Trillium will notify parties that have already submitted a proposal if additional information is needed to be considered.
