Substance abuse treatment services are funded statewide through contracts based on the state's requests for proposals. Contracts are funded jointly by the Iowa Department of Human Services (Medicaid Program) and the Iowa Department of Public Health (Federal Substance Abuse Block Grant and state funds). A managed care subcontractor has managed these funds since September 1995.
Substance abuse prevention funds are available for comprehensive services and for specially designated activities. Contracts to non-profit or governmental organizations are based on requests for proposals.
