Description

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2018 Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Program:  American Indian and Alaska Native Support Center Cooperative Agreement (AI/AN ATTC).  The purpose of this program is to provide support for the ATTC Network, American Indian and Alaska Natives Tribes, tribal organizations, urban Indian programs, state and local governments, and other organizations to develop and strengthen the specialized behavioral healthcare and primary healthcare workforce that provides substance use disorder (SUD) treatment and recovery support services to tribal communities.

This is accomplished by accelerating the adoption and implementation of culturally sensitive, evidence-based and promising SUD treatment and recovery-oriented practices and services; heightening the awareness, knowledge, and skills of the workforce that addresses the needs of tribal communities with substance use or other co-occurring health disorders; and fostering regional and national alliances among culturally diverse practitioners, researchers, policy makers, funders, and the recovery community.

The AI/AN ATTC recipient will work directly with SAMHSA and in collaboration with the FY 2017 ATTC National Coordinating Center and the 10 Regional ATTC Centers on activities aimed at improving the quality and effectiveness of treatment and recovery, as well as working directly with providers of clinical and recovery support services, and others that influence the delivery of services, to improve the quality of workforce training and service delivery to tribal communities.

Eligibility

Eligibility is limited to current SAMHSA Addiction Technology Transfer Center Cooperative Agreement recipients and those funded in FY 2012 under RFA TI-12-008.  Eligibility is limited to these recipients because they are able to maintain the established infrastructure, partnerships, and necessary knowledge and skills to rapidly implement the program
