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.

How To Apply: Applications for these grants (SP 05-001) are available by calling SAMHSA's National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information at 1 (800) 729-6686 and from the SAMHSA Web site at www.samhsa.gov/grants/index.aspx.
