Description

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2018 Enhancement and Expansion of Treatment and Recovery Services for Adolescents, Transitional Aged Youth, and their Families grant program (Short Title:  Youth and Family TREE).  The purpose of this program is to enhance and expand comprehensive treatment, early intervention, and recovery support services for adolescents (ages 12-18), transitional aged youth (ages 16-25), and their families/primary caregivers with substance use disorders (SUD) and/or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders.

The population of focus is adolescents and/or transitional aged youth and their families/primary caregivers with SUD and/or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders (hereafter known as “the population of focus”).  Based on need and identification of traditionally underserved populations, applicants may choose to provide services to adolescents and their families/primary caregivers, transitional aged youth and their families/primary caregivers, or both populations and their families/primary caregivers.  Applicants that select transitional aged youth may choose a subset of this population of focus (e.g., ages 16-18, ages 18-21, ages 21-25).  Applicants will be expected to identify and reduce differences in access, service use, and outcomes of services among females and racial and ethnic minority populations to address health disparities.

SAMHSA recognizes that effective and quality treatment for adolescent and transitional aged youth includes age and developmentally appropriate evidence-based assessments and practices.  In addition, SAMHSA recognizes that family/primary caregiver involvement in the adolescent and transitional aged youth’s treatment is a key factor in effective treatment and recovery programs.  The recipient will be expected to provide a coordinated multi-system family centered approach that will enhance and expand comprehensive evidence-based treatment, including early intervention, and recovery support services to the population of focus.

Eligibility

Eligible applicants are domestic public and private nonprofit entities.  For example:

  • State governments; the District of Columbia, Guam, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau are also eligible to apply
  • Governmental units within political subdivisions of a state, such as a county, city or town
  • Federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes, tribal organizations, Urban Indian Organizations, and consortia of tribes or tribal organizations
  • Public or private universities and colleges
  • Public/Private non-profit health care systems such as health maintenance organizations (HMOs), preferred-provider organizations (PPOs), Federally Qualified Health Care systems or hospital systems
  • Community- and faith-based organizations.

SAMHSA seeks to further expand access and the geographical distribution, as well as reduce duplication, of its adolescent programs.  Therefore, grant recipients funded under TI-16-006 FY 2016 Cooperative Agreements for Adolescent and Transitional Aged Youth Treatment Implementation and TI-17-002 FY 2017 Cooperative Agreements for Adolescent and Transitional Aged Youth Treatment Implementation are not eligible to apply for this funding opportunity.
