Program Supplements for Minority Fellowship Program - Addiction Counselors (Short Title: MFP-AC): The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), announces the availability of one-year supplemental funding to enable grantees from the fiscal year (FY) 2014 Now is the Time: Minority Fellowship Program-Addiction Counselors (Short Title: NITT-MFP-AC) cohort to expand/enhance grant activities required under the FY 2014 Request for Applications (RFA), TI-14-010. Information on this program may be found in the original funding announcement, available on the SAMHSA website at https://www.samhsa.gov/grants/grant-announcements/ti-14-010. The purpose of this program is to provide additional support to the broader objective of the FY 2014 NITT-MFP-AC grants. The NITT-MFP-AC grants reduce health disparities and improve health care outcomes for racially and ethnically diverse populations by increasing the number of culturally competent master's level addiction counselors available to underserved minority populations (e.g., Asian American, African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islanders), with a specific focus on transition age youth (ages 16-25) with substance misuse/substance use disorders (SUDs), in public and private non-profit sectors. Historically, the mental health and substance use needs of racial and ethnic minority communities within the United States have been underserved, due to a limited number of trained practitioners sensitive to the cultural issues or equipped with the language skills that impact effective services delivery. The MFP-AC Program Supplements will provide specialized training of behavioral health professionals in psychiatry, psychology, nursing, social work, counseling, and marriage and family therapy. MFP-AC Supplement funds need to be tracked separately from original grant (TI-14-010) funds.
