SAMHSA Awards New Grants

American Indian/Alaska Native Community Substance Abuse Treatment Plans

SAMHSA recently announced $1.5 million in grants to help six rural American Indian and Alaska Native communities develop local substance abuse treatment systems. Awards for each community total $250,000 or less for the 18-month project period. Plans covered by the grant include combining substance abuse and related services into a comprehensive p rogram, strategic planning for substance abuse training for youth up to age 25, community-based strategic planning of the delivery of culturally appropriate treatment and related services, development of a traditional substance abuse services model, assessment of community needs and a strategic consensus-based system of care, and identification of gaps in services and creation of a tribal service plan.

Emergency Planning Grants

A total of 35 state governments are recipients of nearly $3.5 million in grants from SAMHSA to develop effective mental health and substance abuse response systems for use in response to both natural and man-made emergencies. (See SAMHSA News, Strengthening States for more details.) End of Article
