The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2006 for grants to expand the availability of comprehensive, high quality residential treatment services for pregnant and postpartum women (postpartum refers to the period after childbirth up to 12 months) who suffer from alcohol and other drug use problems, and for their minor children impacted by perinatal and environmental effects of maternal substance use and abuse.

Residential Treatment for Pregnant and Postpartum Women (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).

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, federally recognized tribes, 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 and no later than 4 months after award.

Eligibility

Eligible applicants are domestic public and private nonprofit entities. For example, State and local governments; federally recognized tribes; State recognized tribes, urban Indian organizations (as defined in P.L. 94-437, as amended); public or private universities and colleges; community- and faith-based organizations; and tribal organizations may apply. The statutory authority for this program prohibits grants to for-profit organizations.

Award Information

It is expected that up to $3.4 million will be available to fund up to 8 awards in FY 2006. Annual awards are expected to be $500,000 per year in total costs (direct and indirect) for up to 3 years.

Proposed budgets cannot exceed $500,000 in any year of the proposed project. Annual continuation awards will depend on the availability of funds, grantee progress in meeting project goals and objectives, and timely submission of required data and reports.
