State Incentive Grants to Build Capacity for Alternatives to Restraint and Seclusion: The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Mental Health Services is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2007 for State Incentive Grants to Build Capacity for Alternatives to Restraint and Seclusion (Short Title: Alternatives to Restraint and Seclusion SIG). The purpose of this program is to support States/Tribes in their efforts to reduce and ultimately eliminate the use of restraint and seclusion in institutional and community-based settings that provide mental health services (including services for people with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health disorders). Through the Alternatives to Restraint and Seclusion SIG program, States/Tribes will increase the number of programs that implement alternative models to reduce/eliminate restraint and seclusion, including staff training models and other multi-faceted approaches. The Alternatives to Restraint and Seclusion SIG program is one of SAMHSAs infrastructure grant programs. SAMHSAs infrastructure grants support an array of activities to help the grantee build a solid foundation for delivering and sustaining effective recovery-based substance abuse prevention and/or treatment and/or mental health services. SAMHSA recognizes that each applicant will start from a unique point in developing infrastructure and will serve populations/communities with specific needs. Awardees may pursue diverse strategies and methods to achieve their infrastructure development and capacity expansion goals. Successful applicants will provide a coherent and detailed conceptual "roadmap" of the process by which they have assessed or intend to assess service system needs and plan/implement infrastructure development strategies that meet those needs. The plan put forward in the grant application must show the linkages among needs, the proposed infrastructure development strategy, and increased system capacity that will enhance and sustain effective programs and services. Alternatives to Restraint and Seclusion SIG grants are authorized under Title 4. Public Health and Welfare, Chapter 6A - Public Health Service, Subchapter III A - Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Part A Organization and General Authority, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 290aa et seq. This announcement addresses Healthy People 2010 focus area 18 - Mental Health and Mental Disorders.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible applicants are agencies of States, the District of Columbia, Territories and Native American tribal governments (Federally recognized) with jurisdiction over mental health issues for the target population identified in the proposed project. The statutory authority for this program prohibits grants to for-profit organizations. Eligible applicants must have the capacity to report incidents of restraint and seclusion to their State Protection and Advocacy system, specifically the Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness (PAIMI) Program, as required under the Childrens Health Act of 2000. States that received a grant under the FY 2004 - FY 2006 Alternatives to Seclusion and Restraint (SIG) are not eligible. Eligibility is restricted to agencies of States, the District of Columbia, Territories and Native American tribal governments (Federally recognized) with jurisdiction over mental health issues for the target population identified in the proposed project because these are the only entities that have the necessary authority to make the system level changes that are required to implement alternatives to seclusion and restraint for the target population. Exclusion of States that received a grant under the FY 2004 - FY 2006 Alternatives to Seclusion and Restraint (SIG) is justified by the desire to increase the reach and impact of this grant program. Previous grantees have already built a basic infrastructure for implementing alternatives to seclusion and restraint (e.g., changes in policy, infrastructure, training, and overall "culture change") which can be continued without receiving additional grant support. By using these grant funds to create this basic infrastructure in additional States/Tribes, SAMHSA will maximize the impact of these limited grant funds.
