- Additional Information on Eligibility
- Eligible applicants are: * States (Including D.C. and the Territories) * 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 * 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 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. The statutory authority for this program prohibits grants to for-profit agencies. States and/or Tribes who have been previous recipients of the State/Tribal Youth Suicide award are eligible but are required to address how this grant award will build on and/or expand the work of the earlier grant awards and not simply continuing what was done. The statutory authority for this program prohibits grants to for-profit agencies.
