FY 2008 Forecast Provides Look Ahead at SAMHSA Grant Opportunities
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is offering an early look at its 2008 grant opportunities in a new funding forecast and help developing applications in an updated manual.
SAMHSA Anticipated FY 2008 Funding Opportunities “At A Glance” provides potential grant applicants with a list of the programs under which SAMHSA expects to invite applications for new awards in Fiscal Year 2008. The information in this easy-to-read chart is based on the President’s FY 2008 budget request, so it is tentative and preliminary. Final figures will not be available until SAMHSA receives its FY 2008 appropriation.
For each program, the chart provides estimated funding, number and size of awards, a program description, eligibility restrictions, contact information for the project officer, and a target publication date. Individual grant announcements will be published throughout the year.
Developing Competitive SAMHSA Grant Applications provides a roadmap for planning, writing and preparing a grant application for SAMHSA funding. The manual now addresses electronic application submission, the evaluation criteria have been updated, and application and review procedures have been clarified.
SAMHSA Anticipated FY 2008 Funding Opportunities “At A Glance” is available on the Web at http://www.samhsa.gov/Grants/2008/fy2008opps.aspx and Developing Competitive SAMHSA Grant Applications at http://ncadistore.samhsa.gov/catalog/productDetails.aspx?ProductID=17670.
