Description

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) announces the availability of two-year supplemental funding to enable the grantee from the Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Cooperative Agreement for the Provider’s Clinical Support System - Medication Assisted Treatment (PCCS-MAT) cohort to expand/enhance grant activities required under the FY 2016 Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). Information on this program may be found in the original funding announcement, TI-16-003 available on the SAMHSA website at http://www.samhsa.gov/grants/grant-announcements/ti-16-003.

The Cooperative Agreement for the Provider’s Clinical Support System – Medication Assisted Treatment Supplement (Short Title: PCSS-MAT Supplement) program purpose is to expand on the Drug Addiction Treatment Act (DATA) of 2000 and continue SAMHSA’s currently funded PCSS-MAT initiative. The current PCSS-MAT initiative has provided 267 wavier trainings, 88 online continuing medical educational/clinical educational (CME/CE) courses, a no cost clinical coaching/mentoring support for all health professionals in primary care, and has trained over 32,000 health professionals. The PCSS-MAT program has provided up-to-date and evidence-based information to support the training of health professionals and to address the complex issues of substance use disorders, addiction, and co-occurring mental disorders. This supplement will provide additional support to the current PCSS-MAT grantee by enhancing/expanding medication assisted treatment (MAT) training and educational resources to health professionals on evidence-based practices for preventing, identifying, and treating opioid use disorders. Grant funds received under this supplement may only be used to support new activities and to serve new populations. PCSS-MAT Supplement funds need to be tracked separately from original grant (TI-16-003) funds.

Eligibility

Eligibility is limited to the current SAMHSA FY 2016 PCCS-MAT grantee, the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry. Eligibility is limited because this is the most effective way to accomplish the goals of this two-year supplement since the current grantee has the necessary knowledge, experience, and key partnerships in place to carry out grant activities without a lengthy start-up period.
