SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE; FINDINGS.

    (a) Short Title.--This Act may be cited as the ``Expanding Findings 
for Federal Opioid Research and Treatment Act'' or the ``EFFORT Act''.
    (b) <<NOTE: 42 USC 1862u note.>>  Findings.--The Congress finds 
that--
            (1) research gaps currently exist in the prevention and 
        treatment of opioid addiction;
            (2) the National Science Foundation's research on opioid 
        addiction has increased understanding of the neuroscience of 
        addiction, substance abuse intervention, the role of illicit 
        supply networks, the secondary effects on families, the use of 
        technology to address the opioid epidemic, and options for 
        alternative, non-addictive therapeutics for pain; and
            (3) the National Science Foundation and the National 
        Institutes of Health have recognized that fundamental questions 
        in basic, clinical, and translational research would benefit 
        greatly from multidisciplinary approaches and collaboration.
SEC. 2. <<NOTE: Consultation. 42 USC 1862u.>>  NSF SUPPORT OF 
                    RESEARCH ON OPIOID ADDICTION.

    The Director of the National Science Foundation, in consultation

merit-reviewed and competitively awarded research on the science of
