Services Grant Program for Residential Treatment for Pregnant and Postpartum Women (Short Title: PPW): The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2014 Residential Treatment for Pregnant and Postpartum Women (PPW) grant program. The purpose of this program is to expand the availability of comprehensive, residential substance abuse treatment, prevention, and recovery support services for pregnant and postpartum women and their minor children, including services for non-residential family members of both the women and children. The populations of focus are low-income (according to federal poverty guidelines) women, age 18 and over, who are pregnant, postpartum (the period after childbirth up to 12 months), and their minor children, age 17 and under, who have limited access to quality health services. SAMHSA has identified traditionally underserved populations, especially racial and ethnic minority women, as a population of focus. SAMHSA is particularly concerned about the high morbidity and mortality rates of pregnant women and their infants among African Americans. Services should be extended, when deemed appropriate, to fathers of the children, partners of the women, and other family members of the women and children who do not reside in the residential treatment facility. The PPW program supports evidence-based parenting and treatment models including trauma-specific services in a trauma-informed context, which will: • Decrease the use and/or abuse of prescription drugs, alcohol, tobacco, illicit and other harmful drugs (e.g., inhalants) among pregnant and postpartum women; • Increase safe and healthy pregnancies; • Improve birth outcomes; • Reduce perinatal and environmentally related effects of maternal and/or paternal drug abuse on infants and children; • Improve the mental and physical health of the women and children; • Prevent mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders among the children; • Improve parenting skills, family functioning, economic stability, and quality of life; • Decrease involvement in and exposure to crime, violence, and neglect; and • Decrease physical, emotional, and sexual abuse for all family members. In accordance with SAMHSA’s Strategic Initiative on Trauma and Justice, the PPW program aims to reduce the pervasive, harmful, and costly health impact of violence and trauma by integrating trauma-informed approaches throughout health, behavioral health, and related systems. The PPW grant program seeks to address behavioral health disparities among racial and ethnic minorities through by encouraging the implementation of strategies to decrease the differences in access, service use, and outcomes among the racial and ethnic minority populations served. (See Appendix J: Addressing Behavioral Health Disparities). PPW is one of SAMHSA’s services grant programs. SAMHSA intends that its services grants result in the delivery of services as soon as possible after award. Service delivery should begin by the 4th month of the project at the latest. PPW grants are authorized under Section 508 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended. This announcement addresses Healthy People 2020 Substance Abuse Topic Area HP 2020-SA.
