Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) Partnerships with Community Based Organizations (CBOs). (Short Title: MSI/CBO): The purpose of this program is to prevent and reduce SA and transmission of HIV/AIDS among African-American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Natives (AI/AN) young adult (ages 18-24) populations. CSAP expects MSIs to partner with one or more community-based organizations (CBOs) to provide integrated SA and HIV prevention programs to African-American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Natives (AI/AN) young adults (ages 18-24) in the surrounding communities. Applicants are required to base their projects on the five steps of SAMHSA's Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF). During the implementation phase, MSIs are expected to work with their collaborating CBOs to conduct the following tasks: - Conduct focus groups to identify high risk populations on the MSI campus and in the surrounding communities; - Implement evidence based substance abuse/HIV prevention and environmental prevention strategies to change community norms; - Provide outreach that includes prevention education strategies to reach racial/ethnic minority young adults on MSI campuses and in the surrounding communities; - Implement required strategies for HIV testing and referral services.

Additional Information on Eligibility
SAMHSA is limiting eligibility to MSIs (i.e., Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), and Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) because the purpose of the MSI-CBO grant program is to prevent and reduce SA and HIV/AIDS among minority at-risk populations. Data have shown that young adults from minority populations represent the majority of new HIV infections. MSIs have a documented and consistent concentration of minority young 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 screening, testing, and prevention education and information on SA and HIV; 3) they have an established infrastructure for addressing SA and HIV/AIDS prevention that can be sustained as part of the community fabric; and 4) SAMHSA has shown success in using the MSI model to address SA and HIV prevention at the community level. 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 and HIV/AIDS prevention goals.
