The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS), is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2021 Resiliency in Communities After Stress and Trauma (Short Title: ReCAST Program) grants. The purpose of this program is to assist high-risk youth and families and promote resilience and equity in communities that have recently faced civil unrest through implementation of evidence-based, violence prevention, and community youth engagement programs, as well as linkages to trauma-informed behavioral health services. The goal of the ReCAST Program is for local community entities to work together in ways that lead to improved behavioral health, empowered community residents, reductions in trauma, and sustained community change.
Eligible applicants are local municipalities (e.g., counties, cities, and local governments) in partnership with community-based organizations that have faced civil unrest within the past 24 months from the posting of this FOA.
Grant recipients that received their initial funding award under the Resiliency in Communities After Stress and Trauma FOA (SM-17-009) in FY 2017 and 2018 are not eligible to apply.
The FY 2016 Appropriations included language that SAMHSA should prioritize funding grants from communities that have formed partnerships between key stakeholders including state and local governments (including multiple cities and counties if impacted); public or private universities and colleges; and non-profit community and faith- based organizations. Therefore, SAMHSA is limiting eligibility to local municipalities (e.g., counties, cities, and local governments) in partnership with community-based organizations that have faced civil unrest within the past 24 months from the posting of the FOA. SAMHSA believes that local municipalities are in the best position to implement a coordinated, public health approach that leads to improved behavioral health and sustained community change and to develop partnerships within the community that result in high-risk youth and their families having equitable access to resources and services.
