Cooperative Agreement to Benefit Homeless Individuals for States-Enhancement: The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) and Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) are accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2015 Cooperative Agreements to Benefit Homeless Individuals for States-Enhancement (CABHI-States-Enhancement) grants. The purpose of this jointly funded program is for states that received CABHI-States grants in FY 2013 and FY 2014 to further develop, enhance and/or expand infrastructure and treatment service systems. The funding for this enhancement grant must be used for new activities and should not supplant funding received under the original grant. These funds are to be used to expand and/or enhance the scope of the project funded under the original grant. The enhancement and/or expansion will increase capacity to provide accessible, effective, comprehensive, coordinated/integrated, and evidence-based treatment services; permanent supportive housing; peer supports; and other recovery supports to:
• Individuals who experience chronic homelessness and have substance use disorders, serious mental illnesses (SMI), or co-occurring mental and substance use disorders; and/or
• Veterans who experience homelessness/chronic homelessness and have substance use disorders, SMI, or co-occurring mental and substance use disorders.
As a result of this program, SAMHSA seeks to: 1) improve statewide strategies to address planning and coordination of behavioral health and primary care services, and permanent housing to reduce homelessness; 2) increase the number of individuals, residing in permanent housing, who receive behavioral health treatment and recovery support services; and 3) increase the number of individuals placed in permanent housing and enrolled in Medicaid and other mainstream benefits (e.g., Supplemental Security Income/Social Security Disability Insurance [SSI/SSDI], Temporary Assistance for Needy Families [TANF], Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program [SNAP]).
The goal of the CABHI-States-Enhancement program is to ensure, through state and local planning and service delivery, that individuals who experience chronic homelessness and have substance use disorders, SMI, or co-occurring mental and substance use disorders, and/or veterans who experience homelessness/chronic homelessness and have substance use disorders, SMI, or co-occurring mental and substance use disorders (hereinafter referred to as “population(s) of focus”) receive access to sustainable permanent supportive housing, treatment, recovery supports, and Medicaid and other mainstream benefits. To achieve this goal, SAMHSA will continue to support three primary types of activities:
1. Build upon the current statewide plan to enhance sustained partnerships across public health and housing systems that will result in short- and long-term strategies to support those experiencing homelessness who have behavioral health issues.
2. Expand delivery of behavioral health, housing support, peer, and other recovery-oriented services.
3. Enhance and/or expand assistance to the state Medicaid eligibility agency in developing a streamlined application process for the population(s) of focus and assistance to providers (e.g., alcohol and drug treatment facilities, homeless service providers) seeking to become qualified Medicaid providers; to engage and enroll eligible persons constituting the population(s) of focus in Medicaid and other mainstream benefit programs (e.g., SSI/SSDI, TANF, SNAP).
The CABHI-States grant program closely aligns with SAMHSA’s Strategic Initiative on Recovery Support. For more information on SAMHSA’s six strategic initiatives, you can visit http://www.samhsa.gov/about-us/strategic-initiatives. The CABHI-States-Enhancement program seeks to address behavioral health disparities among racial and ethnic minorities by encouraging the implementation of strategies to decrease the differences in access, service use, and outcomes among the racial and ethnic minority populations served. (See PART II: Appendix G – Addressing Behavioral Health Disparities).
CABHI-States-Enhancement is one of SAMHSA’s services grant programs. SAMHSA intends that its services grants result in the delivery of services as soon as possible after award. Service delivery should begin by the 4th month of the project at the latest.
CABHI-States-Enhancement grants are authorized under Section 509 and 520A of the Public Health Service Act, as amended. The combination of these authorities permits SAMHSA to announce and administer this jointly funded grant program as it is described in this document. This announcement addresses Healthy People 2020 Mental Health and Mental Disorders Topic Area HP 2020-MHMD and Substance Abuse Topic Area HP 2020-SA.
