The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is accepting applications for cooperative agreements for State Adolescent and Transitional Aged Youth Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination grants for up to four years. The program provides funding to states/territories/tribes to improve treatment for adolescents and transitional aged youth through the development of a learning laboratory with collaborating local community-based treatment provider sites. Through the shared experience between the state/territory/tribe and local community-based treatment provider sites, an evidence-based practice will be implemented to help better provide services to meet the needs of adolescents, transitional aged youth, and their families/primary caregivers.
SAMHSA expects that a total of up to $38 million will be available to provide up to 10 grantees awards of up to $950,000 per year for up to four years. The actual award amounts may vary depending on the availability of funds.
WHO CAN APPLY: Eligible applicants are the Single-State Substance Abuse agencies (SSAs) in the states/territories and the District of Columbia, and the highest ranking official and/or the duly authorized official of a federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native tribe or tribal organization.
