Cooperative Agreements for Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children's Health (Short Title: Project LAUNCH): The Project LAUNCH grant program requires that the population of focus be children from birth to eight years of age and their families. Efforts to improve and integrate systems and enhance services should include not only those providers and settings serving children from birth to five years (e.g. child care, early education, primary care, Head Start) but also those systems serving children in the early elementary grades, including schools. Efforts to create better linkages between early childhood providers and schools are often much needed, and can be instrumental in ensuring that supports and skills gained in the first five years of life can be sustained and built upon when children enter school. Applicants must identify a geographic locality to serve as the local community for the grant. Examples of local communities are towns, cities, counties, a cluster of zip codes or census tracts, a school district, tribal area or jurisdiction, or an Alaskan Village. The chosen locality should be: definable by clear geographic boundaries; have a cohesive service system with a set of entities that represent the required members of the Local Council; suitable for the implementation of the Project LAUNCH activities; and should not be so large in terms of population or geography that the project cannot make a significant impact on outcomes for children and families within that community. Local communities are expected to have a dual focus on (1) making improvements to the early childhood system and (2) improving access to and availability of evidence-based prevention and wellness promotion practices (including traditional tribal practices that promote wellness). Project LAUNCH focuses on preventing mental, emotional, and behavioral challenges and promoting healthy development and functioning. Applicants will infuse mental health promotion practices and evidence-based prevention practices into primary care, early care and education, home visiting, and family settings. Innovative and effective prevention/promotion practices at the local level will serve as models to be sustained and replicated throughout the state, territory, and tribe. While Project LAUNCH aims to serve families with young children from birth through age eight, services may also be provided to pregnant women and their families if these efforts are in the service of ensuring the health or wellbeing of the child and family. SAMHSA strongly encourages all grantees to provide a smoke tobacco-free workplace and to promote abstinence from all tobacco products (except in regard to accepted Tribal traditions and practices).

Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligibility for this program is limited to: • State and territorial governments (Title V or lead Children’s Mental Health Agency); and • Federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes and tribal organizations. SAMHSA believes that state and territorial governments (Title V or Mental Health Agency), federally-recognized tribes and tribal organizations have the capacity to bring together child-serving organizations to develop policies, financial mechanisms and other reforms to improve the integration and efficiency of local child-serving systems. Tribal organization means the recognized body of any AI/AN tribe; any legally established organization of AI/AN which is controlled, sanctioned, or chartered by such governing body or which is democratically elected by the adult members of the Indian community to be served by such organization and which includes the maximum participation of AI/AN in all phases of its activities. Consortia of tribes or tribal organizations are eligible to apply, but each participating entity must indicate its approval. Consortia of tribes are expected to identify a lead applicant. In an effort broaden the impact and increase the number of states, territories, federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes and tribal organizations, current and previously-funded State and Tribal Project LAUNCH grantees are not eligible to apply. The statutory authority for this program prohibits grants to for-profit agencies. In an effort to increase the number of federally-recognized tribes receiving grant funds for this program, five points will be assigned to federally-recognized tribal applicants, see Evaluation Criteria – Section F. Please see Appendix M for additional tribal guidance.
