Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligibility for SAMHSAs State/Tribal Youth Suicide Prevention Grant Program is limited to: 1. States. 2. Federally recognized Indian tribes, tribal organizations (as defined in the Indian Self-Determination and Educational Assistance Act), or urban Indian organizations (as defined in the Indian Health Care Improvement Act) that are actively involved in the development and continuation of a tribal youth suicide early intervention and prevention strategy. 3. Public or private non-profit organizations designated by a State, federally recognized Indian tribe, tribal organization, or urban Indian organization, to develop or direct the State/tribal-sponsored youth suicide prevention and early intervention strategy. The Public Health Service Act defines the term "State" to also include the District of Columbia, Guam, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. Each State or tribe can receive only one State/Tribal Youth Suicide Prevention Program grant. No single State agency is mandated to be the lead for State/Tribal Youth Suicide Prevention Program grants, as States differ in which State agency has taken the lead for suicide prevention (e.g., Department of Health, Department of Mental Health). Where States have a plan that designates a lead agency, that agency should act as the lead or should designate an alternative lead for State/Tribal Youth Suicide Prevention Grant Program. If the State plan does not designate a lead agency, justify the selection of the lead agency for this application.
