The University of Maryland Center for Addiction Research, Education, and Service (CARES) Science to Systems pilot grant program is seeking applications. Proposals focused on the following areas are prioritized: (1) potential to favorably impact substance use related systems of care, (2) feasibility for behavioral health system translation, and (3) likelihood of continued impact on SUD systems of care (e.g., further development and testing, the potential for external funding generated from pilot grant findings). Interprofessional and community collaboration is considered essential for ensuring that research findings are relevant, feasible, and translatable to SUD systems of care.  

Please go to to access the request for applications, which describes the elements for the five-page proposal. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2022.
