Targeted Capacity Expansion: Substance Abuse Treatment for Racial/Ethnic Minority Women at High Risk for HIV/AIDS (TCE-HIV: Minority Women): The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2013 Targeted Capacity Expansion: Substance Abuse Treatment for Racial/Ethnic Minority Women at High Risk for HIV/AIDS (TCE-HIV: Minority Women) grants. The purpose of this program is to expand substance abuse treatment and HIV services for African American, Hispanic/Latina and other racial/ethnic minority women (ages 18 years and older), including heterosexual, lesbian, bisexual, previously incarcerated women, and their significant others, who have substance use or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders and are living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS. The goals of this program are to: (1) reduce HIV infection and transmission rates among African American, Hispanic/Latina and other racial/ethnic minority women, including reducing alcohol, marijuana, cocaine and injecting drug use (IDU); (2) address the impact of violence and trauma on women's increased risk of substance abuse and HIV infection; (3) increase access to culturally appropriate, women and family centered, trauma-informed substance abuse/co-occurring mental health treatment and HIV/viral hepatitis services, including HIV and hepatitis B and C testing; (4) educate and empower African American, Hispanic/Latina and other racial/ethnic minority women to increase their awareness of safer sex practices (e.g., condom use) and make informed decisions about their behavioral health, including trauma-related HIV risk-behaviors; and (5) implement evidence-based interventions. Although progress has been made with respect to addressing risk behaviors, it is clear that more progress is needed. Data from CSAT's HIV programs demonstrate positive outcomes on domains such as injection drug use, unprotected sexual contacts, and unprotected sexual contact with someone with HIV, someone who is using intravenous (IV) drugs, or someone who is under the influence of substance(s) such as alcohol and/or other drugs. CDC Fast Facts: HIV Among Women (August 2011) shows that in 2009 there were an estimated 11,200 new HIV infections among women in the U.S. In that year, women comprised 51 percent of the U.S. population and 23 percent of those newly infected with HIV. Of the total number of new HIV infections among U.S. women in 2009, 57 percent occurred in Black females, 21 percent occurred in Whites, and 16 percent occurred in Hispanics/Latinas. In 2009, the rate of new HIV infections among Black women was 15 times that of White women, and over 3 times the rate among Hispanic/Latina women. See Appendix L, Background Information, for additional information. This funding opportunity supports the Congressional Minority AIDS Initiative, which was developed to improve HIV-related health outcomes for racial and ethnic minority communities disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS, and to reduce HIV-related health disparities. The program also supports the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and SAMHSA's Strategic Initiatives: Health Reform, Prevention of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Illness, and Recovery Support. TCE-HIV: Minority Women 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 for this grant program should begin by the 4th month after receiving the notice of award. TCE-HIV: Minority Women grants are authorized under Section 509 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended. This announcement addresses Healthy People 2020 Substance Abuse Topic Area HP 2020-SA.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible applicants are domestic public and private nonprofit entities. For example: - Community- and faith-based organizations, - Federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes and tribal organizations, - Urban Indian organizations, - Hospitals, - Federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) and FQHC look-a-likes, and - Public or private universities and colleges. Tribal organization means the recognized body of any AI/AN tribe; any legally established organization of American Indians/Alaska Natives which is controlled, sanctioned, or chartered by such governing body or which is democratically elected by the adult members of the Indian community to be served by such organization and which includes the maximum participation of American Indians/Alaska Natives in all phases of its activities. Consortia of tribes or tribal organizations are eligible to apply, but each participating entity must indicate its approval. Grantees currently implementing a SAMHSA/CSAT TCE-HIV grant that will extend past 9/29/2013 (excluding no-cost extensions) are not eligible to apply. SAMHSA believes that in order to achieve the goals of this program to enhance infrastructure and capacity to improve the community's response to HIV/AIDS by increasing access to care and services for African American, Hispanic/Latina and other racial/ethnic minority women at high risk for or living with HIV/AIDS, grant funds must go directly to community-based organizations, tribes and tribal organizations, and other eligible applicants listed above. Locally based organizations operating and providing services in areas traditionally underserved by governmental services have a proven track record of reaching minority populations and dealing with sensitive identity issues such as HIV status and perceived sexual orientation. Local organizations are also more likely to be managed by minorities living in the areas that have been targeted by this funding announcement. These organizations will be more predisposed to employ community residents and be staffed by peers of the clients seeking services. In addition, local organizations will have more representation on their Board of Directors and Community Advisory Councils of community leaders, both private and public. Governmental agencies would need excessive start up periods to physically locate service provisions in the affected communities. Therefore, state and local governments are not eligible to apply. The statutory authority for this program prohibits grants to for-profit agencies.
