SAMHSA Grants: $20.6 Million for Prevention of HIV/AIDS
To help prevent substance abuse and HIV/AIDS among minority
populations in high-risk areas, SAMHSA recently released
a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for Fiscal Year
2005 to fund 59 to 82 cooperative agreements. These grants
will help prevent the onset of substance abuse, and the
transmission of HIV/AIDS and hepatitis, among communities
across the Nation.
Administered by SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse
Prevention, these strategic prevention framework projects
will develop a solid foundation for delivering effective
substance abuse prevention and related services.
Average annual awards should range from $250,000 to
$350,000 per year for up to 5 years.
Eligible applicants include non-profit, community-based
organizations, faith-based organizations, colleges and
universities, health care delivery organizations, local
governments, tribal governments, and tribal urban Indian
groups. Eligibility is limited to applicants from geographic
areas with high AIDS case rates. Eligible are geographic
areas in states with an annual AIDS case rate of at least
10 cases per 100,000 people, or metropolitan statistical
areas with an annual AIDS case rate of at least 20 cases
per 100,000 people among minority populations.

grants (SP 05-001) are available by calling SAMHSA's
