The new national program will recognize community-based organizations and coalitions that use evidence-based mental health and substance abuse interventions.

A maximum of three awards will be made in each of four categories:

  • Substance Abuse Prevention

  • Treatment of Substance Abuse and Recovery Support Services

  • Mental Health Promotion

  • Treatment of Mental Illness and Recovery Support Services.

Four review panels, which include national experts in the field, will rate applications in each category on community need, sustainability, implementation, and results.

Award recommendations will include the top three scores in each category. SAMHSA’s Office of the Administrator and the Agency’s Center Directors will review and approve finalists.

To be eligible for an award, an organization must have actually used a recognized evidence-based intervention. Both public sector (state, local, territorial, tribal) and private sector organizations are eligible.
