Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) Partnerships with Community-Based Organizations (CBOs). Short Title: MSI CBO: The purpose of this program is to prevent and reduce substance abuse (SA) and transmission of HIV/AIDS among at-risk populations, including African American, Hispanic/Latino, Asian American/Pacific Islander (AA/PI), and American Indian/Alaska Natives (AI/AN) young adult (ages 18-24) populations. To meet the needs of these populations, CSAP expects MSIs to partner with one or more community-based organization(s) (CBO) to provide integrated substance abuse (SA), Hepatitis-C (HCV), and HIV prevention programs. The objectives of this program support the four primary goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy which include: 1) reducing new HIV infections, 2) increasing access to care and improving health outcomes for people living with HIV, 3) reducing HIV-related disparities and health inequities, and 4) achieving a coordinated national response to the HIV epidemic.

Additional Information on Eligibility
SAMHSA is limiting eligibility to MSIs (i.e., HBCUs, HSIs, AANAPISIs and TCUs) because these programs have a unique ability to meet the needs of the population of focus of the program, i.e., at-risk populations, including minorities. MSIs have a documented and consistent concentration of minority adult populations between the ages of 18 and 24. MSIs have the greatest likelihood of achieving success through the MSI CBO grant program because: 1) their student populations are comprised of young adults who are members of racial/ethnic minorities; 2) they have ready access to minority students to provide them with routine HIV/HCV screening, testing, and prevention education and information on substance abuse, HIV and HCV; and 3) they have an established infrastructure for addressing SA, HIV/AIDS and HCV prevention that can be sustained as part of the community fabric. Consistent with the intent of the MAI initiative, MSIs also have experience in working collaboratively with minority community-based organizations (MCBOs) in surrounding communities to achieve SA, HIV/AIDS and HCV prevention goals
