Description

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) and Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) are accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2016 Statewide Peer Networks for Recovery and Resiliency (Short Title: Statewide Peer Networks for R&R) grants. The purpose of this jointly-funded grant program (CSAT and CMHS) is to provide a one-year developmental period to promote cross-system collaboration, expand the peer workforce, build infrastructure, and enhance capacity among currently funded SAMHSA Recovery Community Services Program - Statewide Networks (RCSP-SNs), currently or formerly funded Statewide Consumer Networks (SCNs), and currently or formerly funded Statewide Family Networks (SFNs). These networks will work together to enhance and promote cross-service systems, expand the peer workforce, and develop infrastructure that is recovery and resiliency-oriented, as well as focused on implementation, planning, and sustainability.

This program builds on the FY 2015 program for RCSP-SNs, SFNs, and SCNs to develop intentional, collaborative efforts via Memoranda of Agreement (MOA) and sharing of fiscal resources. The intent of this program is for RCSP-SN, SFN, and SCN grantees within a state to form a collaboration that will develop and/or implement a strategic plan, share resources, engage in cross-training, increase capacity to affect behavioral health systems change at the state and local levels, and improve behavioral health outcomes for people in recovery from substance use disorders (SUDs), children and youth with serious emotional disturbances (SED) and their families, and adult consumers with serious mental illness (SMI).

Eligibility

Eligible applicants are current SAMHSA-funded Recovery Community Services Program - Statewide Networks (RCSP-SNs), Statewide Consumer Networks (SCNs), and Statewide Family Networks (SFNs) and former SAMHSA-funded SCNs and SFNs in the 10 states where there is a RCSP-SN grantee. The ten states include: Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Vermont, and Wisconsin. In states where there are current SAMHSA-funded networks, they must be part of the project. In states where there is not a current SAMHSA-funded SCN and/or SFN grantee, then former SAMHSA-funded SCN and/or SFN grantees must be part of the project (either lead applicant or partner). Former SAMHSA-funded SCN and/or SFN grantees must be an active network within their state and provide documentation as such in Attachment 5. Only one application may be submitted per state.
