The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Substance Abuse Treatment is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2008 for the Residential Treatment for Pregnant and Postpartum Women (PPW) program.  The purpose of these grants is to expand the availability of comprehensive, high quality residential treatment, recovery support, and family services for pregnant and postpartum women (postpartum refers to the period after childbirth up to 12 months) who suffer from alcohol and other drug problems, and their minor children impacted by perinatal and environmental effects of maternal substance use and abuse.  In addition, grantees are encouraged to include fathers of the children, partners of the women, and other extended family members of the women and children in treatment in the target population when their inclusion in non-residential treatment services is deemed appropriate and beneficial.

PPW is one of SAMHSA’s services grant programs.  SAMHSA’s services grants are designed to address gaps in substance abuse services and/or to increase the ability of States, units of local government, American Indian/Alaska Native tribes and tribal organizations, and community- and faith-based organizations to help specific populations or geographic areas with serious, emerging substance abuse problems.  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 2010 focus area 26 (Substance Abuse).

Eligibility

Eligible applicants are domestic public and private nonprofit entities.  For example, State and local governments, federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native tribes and tribal organizations, urban Indian organizations, public or private universities and colleges; and community- and faith-based organizations may apply.  The statutory authority for this program prohibits grants to for-profit agencies.  PPW grantees funded September 29, 2006 (FY 2006) are ineligible to apply under this grant announcement.
