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: 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 Grants.gov (see Appendix A for all registration requirements).
SAMHSA periodically presents training webinars for prospective applicants interested in applying to FY 2021 grant programs. The webinar provides 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. Please find links to a recording and a PDF of the presentation below, and check back to this page periodically for new training dates. Additional information is available on the Training Events, Videos, and Reference Materials for Applicants and Grantees page on the SAMHSA Grants website.
Presenter comments are viewable by hovering over the bubble in the upper left corner of the page.
Please Note: Effective October 1, 2020 SAMHSA no longer utilizes the HHS Checklist in the grant application kit. This applies to all SAMHSA applications: responses to Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs), post-award amendments, continuations, and supplement applications. The contact information for the Project Director (PD) and Business Official (BO) is now entered on the SF424 form, please see Entering SF-424 Contact Information for detailed Instructions.
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.
When you are searching for a funding opportunity on Grants.gov, use SAMHSA's FOA number as the Funding Opportunity Number.
Please note that Grants.gov is periodically inaccessible due to service maintenance and system enhancements. Please check Grants.gov for the outage calendar.
