Fiscal Year 2018 Grant Announcements and Awards

SAMHSA announces grant funding opportunities through Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs). Each FOA contains all the information you need to apply for a grant.

IMPORTANT APPLICATION INFORMATION:  SAMHSA’s application procedures have changed. All applicants must register with NIH’s eRA Commons in order to submit an application. This process takes up to six weeks. If you believe you are interested in applying for this opportunity, you MUST start the registration process immediately. Do not wait to start this process. If your organization is not registered and you do not have an active eRA Commons PI account by the deadline, the application will not be accepted.  No exceptions will be made. 

Applicants also must register with the System for Award Management (SAM) and (see Appendix A for all registration requirements). 

RECORDING AND TRANSCRIPT OF APPLICANT WEBINAR: SAMHSA hosted an applicant webinar on Friday, December 15, 2017. The webinar provided information on how to submit applications to SAMHSA using NIH’s eRA System, including application and registration processes, requirements and validations, and the post-submission process. A recording of the webinar and transcript can be found at: Access the PowerPoint presentation (PDF | 948 KB) from the webinar.

You should become familiar with all the components of the FOA before you apply. When you find an opportunity for which you would like to apply, be sure you meet all the eligibility requirements.
