Description

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2015 Cooperative Agreements for State Adolescent and Transitional Aged Youth Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination Planning [State Youth Treatment -  Planning (SYT-P)].  The purpose of SYT-P is to provide funding to states/territories/tribes (hereafter known as “states”) to develop a comprehensive strategic plan in order to improve treatment for adolescents (ages 12-18) and/or transitional aged youth (ages 16-25) with substance use disorders (SUD) and/or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders (hereafter known as “the population of focus”).  The plan will help to assure that youth have access to evidence-based assessments and treatment models and recovery services by strengthening the existing infrastructure system. 

SYT-P is designed to bring together stakeholders across the systems serving adolescents and transitional aged youth to plan for a coordinated state-wide network to develop policies, expand workforce capacity, disseminate evidence-based practices (EBPs), and implement financial mechanisms and other reforms.  The aim is to improve the integration and efficiency of the treatment and recovery support system serving the population of focus.  SYT-P seeks to address behavioral health disparities among racial and ethnic minorities by encouraging the implementation of strategies to decrease the differences in access, service use and outcomes among the racial and ethnic minority populations served.  

Eligibility

Eligible applicants are the entity within the state/territory/federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native tribe or tribal organization responsible for leading treatment and recovery support services for adolescents and/or transitional aged youth with substance use disorder or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders.  In the case of applicants that select both populations of focus and the responsible lead is housed in two separate entities within the state/territory, the two entities must collaborate in determining which entity will be the applicant.  Additionally, the two entities must collaborate in carrying out the award requirements and include this documentation in Attachment 3 of the application.

Tribal organization means the recognized body of any AI/AN tribe; any legally established organization of American Indians/Alaska Natives which is controlled, sanctioned, or chartered by such governing body or which is democratically elected by the adult members of the Indian community to be served by such organization and which includes the maximum participation of American Indians/Alaska Natives in all phases of its activities.  Consortia of tribes or tribal organizations are eligible to apply, but each participating entity must indicate its approval.
