Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible applicants are the immediate office of the Chief Executive (e.g., Governor) in the States, Territories, and the District of Columbia; or the highest ranking official and/or the duly authorized official of a federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native tribe or tribal organization. Tribal organization means the recognized body of any AI/AN tribe; any legally established organization of American Indians/Alaska Natives 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 American Indians/Alaska Natives in all phases of its activities. Eligible applicants in the same geographic region may apply as a consortium and must designate a single fiscal agent. The Governor/highest ranking official will designate a lead official to be Project Director for the cooperative agreement. That individual may be, but is not required to be, part of the SSA. However, the services to be provided through this cooperative agreement program are to be integrated into the current system of care. Therefore, SAMHSA expects that the SSA will be involved in the project. The Chief Executive of the State, Territory, or District of Columbia, or the highest ranking official and/or the duly authorized official of the Tribal Organization must sign the application. Following the initial award, the Chief Executive or highest ranking official may delegate responsibility for the grant, including signatory authority for continuation applications, to a State Agency, State Official, or duly authorized official. Updated on Nov. 29, 2007: States/tribes that have been recipients of SBIRT cooperative agreements are not eligible to apply.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Substance Abuse Treatment is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2008 for Cooperative Agreements for Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral and Treatment (SBIRT). The purpose of this program is to expand and enhance State/Tribal substance abuse treatment service systems by: * Expanding the States/Tribes continuum of care to include screening, brief intervention, referral, and brief treatment (SBIRT) in general medical and other community settings (e.g., community health centers, nursing homes, schools and student assistance programs, occupational health clinics, hospitals, emergency departments); * Supporting clinically appropriate services for persons at risk for, or diagnosed with, a Substance Use Disorder (i.e., Substance Abuse or Dependence). (Note: for the purpose of this RFA, "at risk" is defined as persons who are using substances but who do not yet meet the criteria for a diagnosis of Substance Use Disorders *); and * Identifying systems and policy changes to increase access to treatment in generalist and specialist settings.Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral and Treatment (SBIRT) is one of SAMHSAs services grant programs. SAMHSAs services grants are designed to address gaps in substance abuse treatment services and/or to increase the ability of States, units of local government, American Indian/Alaska Native tribes and tribal organizations, and community- and faith-based organizations to help specific populations or geographic areas with serious, emerging substance abuse problems. SAMHSA intends that its services grants result in the delivery of services as soon as possible after award. Substantial service delivery should begin by the 6th month of the project at the latest. SBIRT grants are authorized under Section 509 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended. This announcement addresses Healthy People 2010 focus area 26 (Substance Abuse).---------------------------------------* For purposes of this announcement, the need for treatment is discussed in terms of the categories of substance use disorders (substance dependence and substance abuse) used in the American Psychiatric Association Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV; 1994).
