Description

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2016 Cooperative Agreement for the Provider’s Clinical Support System - Medication Assisted Treatment (Short Title: PCSS-MAT) grant. The purpose of this program is to expand on the Drug Addiction Treatment Act (DATA) of 2000 and continue SAMHSA’s currently funded PCSS-MAT initiative. Although the current initiative has provided multiple trainings and mentoring support, there still remains a significant need to increase the number of healthcare providers to address the nation’s lack of adequate care. The PCSS-MAT program will continue to provide up-to-date and evidence-based information to support the training of health professionals and to address the complex issues of addiction.

Eligibility

Eligibility is limited to the national professional medical organizations authorized by the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA) to carry out the training of providers desiring to prescribe and/or dispense FDA approved schedule III medications for the addictive disorders. These organizations are the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM), the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP), the American Medical Association (AMA), the American Osteopathic Academy of Addiction Medicine (AOAAM), and the American Psychiatric Association (APA). Any of these entities may apply individually; they may also apply as a consortium comprised of all or several of the eligible organizations. If a consortium is formed for this purpose, a single organization in the consortium must be the legal applicant, the recipient of the award, and the entity legally responsible for satisfying the grant requirements.
