The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has recently released a grant funding opportunity announcement (FOA). The FOA is titled “Enhancement and Expansion of Treatment and Recovery Services for Adolescents, Transitional Aged Youth, and their Families” it also known as the Youth and Family TREE.
The purpose of this program is to enhance and expand comprehensive treatment, early intervention, and recovery support services for adolescents (ages 12-18), transitional aged youth (ages 16-25), and their families/primary caregivers with substance use disorders (SUD) and/or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders. The recipient will be expected to provide a coordinated multi-system family centered approach that will enhance and expand comprehensive evidence-based treatment, including early intervention, and recovery support services to the population of focus.
The eligible applicants for this FOA include federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes, tribal organizations, Urban Indian Organizations, and consortia of tribes or tribal organizations. Please see the announcement for the full list of eligible applicants. SAMHSA seeks to further expand access and the geographical distribution, as well as reduce duplication, of its adolescent programs. Therefore, grant recipients funded under TI-16-006 FY 2016 Cooperative Agreements for Adolescent and Transitional Aged Youth Treatment Implementation and TI-17-002 FY 2017 Cooperative Agreements for Adolescent and Transitional Aged Youth Treatment Implementation are not eligible to apply for this funding opportunity.
