Scholarships Available for Qualifying Certified Recovery Peer Advocate (CRPA) Candidates

July 15, 2017

The New York Certification Association has recently begun offering certification for the Recovery Peer Advocate. The CRPA’s services rendered at qualifying facilities may be reimbursed by Medicaid. Indeed, peer recovery services represent a growing and important part of the recovery process.

In addition, through the NYS OASAS and NYC, scholarships for qualifying candidates are available for:

  • Training fees
  • Exam fees
  • Application fees
  • Retroactive reimbursement for application or exam

This is an excellent opportunity for those wishing to get certified in New York State and represents a mitigation of most of the administrative costs of certification.

Qualification for financial assistance is at the sole discretion of the NYCA and an application must be submitted on their website.

In the meantime, for more information about the course, please visit our Certified Recovery Peer Advocate (CRPA) page
