Description

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2019 National Evaluation of the Technology Transfer Center Program grant. In FY 2018, SAMHSA reconfigured its approach to training and technical assistance by establishing a national network of regional technology transfer centers for substance abuse prevention and mental health services in addition to the existing centers for addiction technology transfer. The fundamental premise of this new approach was the broad dissemination of evidence-based practices to best equip the healthcare workforce with the skills needed to address substance abuse prevention and the treatment of mental and substance use disorders whether or not this workforce was a beneficiary of SAMHSA grant funding. The purpose of the National Evaluation is to gauge the extent to which this effort has been effective.

  • Public or private universities and colleges.
  • Behavioral health care organizations.
