Purpose: The Drug Treatment and Recovery Act (Measure 110) Oversight and Accountability Council oversees the establishment of Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs) throughout Oregon. The OAC has held regular meetings to accomplish the necessary steps to fund and set up the BHRNs.

The BHRNS will provide increased access to low-barrier SUD treatment, harm reduction, peer support ,and housing at no cost for people who are not eligible for Medicaid and do not have other insurance.

The BHRNs will provide access to portions of the Oregon Cannabis tax revenue, through a grants process managed by OHA and granted by the OAC, annually to community organizations, non-profits, small businesses, Tribal organizations, governmental organizations, and to Urban Indian Health Centers that serve people who use substances or have a substance use disorder

There will be an increased fiscal impact on community organizations, non-profits, small businesses, Tribal organizations, governmental organizations, and Urban Indian Health Centers that become part of a BHRN due to increased staffing requirements, increased reporting requirements, and increased service requirements.

There will be a positive fiscal impact on rural and frontier counties based on increased grant funding.
