Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children's Health in American Indian and Alaskan Native Communities, U.S. Territories, and Pacific Jurisdictions Cooperative Agreements (Short Title: Indigenous - Project LAUNCH): The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS), is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2017 Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children's Health in American Indian/Alaskan (AI/AN) Native Communities and U.S. Territories and Pacific Jurisdictions Cooperative Agreements (Short title: Indigenous Project LAUNCH). The purpose of this program is to promote the wellness of young children from birth to eight years within tribes, territories and Pacific Island jurisdictions by addressing the physical, social, emotional, cognitive and behavioral aspects of their development. The goal of Project LAUNCH is for children to be thriving in safe, supportive environments, and entering school ready to learn and able to succeed. This funding opportunity builds on the success of previous cohorts of Project LAUNCH grantees. Previously-funded tribal and territorial grantees have demonstrated the need for resources devoted to early childhood systems and prevention and promotion practices in tribal and territorial communities. Tribal and territorial grantees have also provided evidence of positive impacts on young children and families when resources are focused on early childhood wellness in a culturally-appropriate and strengths-based manner. Project LAUNCH grants are authorized under Section 520A of the Public Health Service Act, as amended. This announcement addresses Healthy People 2020 Mental Health and Mental Disorders Topic Area HP 2020-MHMD.
