Eligibility

Eligibility for this program is statutorily limited to a State or appropriate State agency (e.g., state mental health authority, the single state agency (SSA) for substance abuse services, the State Medicaid agency, or the state health department) in collaboration with one or more qualified community health programs, as described in section 1913(b)(1) of the PHS Act as amended; or one or more community health centers as described in section 330 of the PHS Act, as amended (e.g., community health centers, health care for the homeless, public housing health centers, and migratory and seasonal agricultural workers health centers).

The statutory authority for this program prohibits grants to for-profit agencies.

Only one application per state will be funded. If more than one entity from a state applies, SAMHSA will only fund the highest scoring application.
