Request for Applications (RFA) No. TI03-003

www.FedGrant.gov posting date: April 14, 2003

Receipt date:  June 13, 2003

SAMHSA's CMHS and CSAT are accepting applications for Fiscal Year 2003 grants to develop and enhance the infrastructure of States and their treatment service systems to increase the capacity to provide accessible, effective, comprehensive, coordinated/integrated, and evidence-based treatment services to persons with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health disorders, and their families.

About COSIG Grants:

Who can apply:  Only the immediate Office of the Governor of States may apply.  State-level agencies are not considered to be part of the immediate Office of the Governor.  This means, for example, that the State Mental Health or Substance Abuse Authorities or other State-level agencies within the Office of the Governor cannot apply independently.  SAMHSA has limited the eligibility to Governors of States because the immediate Office of the Governor has the greatest potential to provide the multi-agency leadership needed to develop the State’s infrastructure/treatment service systems to increase the State’s capacity to provide accessible, effective, comprehensive, coordinated/integrated, and evidence-based services to persons with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health disorders, and their families.

As defined in the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, the term “State” includes all 50 States, the District of Columbia, Guam, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands.  Applications from State agencies other than the Office of the Governor, or from government entities that do not meet the definition of “State,” are not eligible for funding and will not be reviewed.

Est. Funds for FY 2003: $6.5 million

Est. No. of Awards in FY 2003: 6 to 10 awards ranging from $500,000 to $1.1 million in total costs (direct and indirect)

Grantees in years 1-3 will receive up to $1.1 million per year. Grantees with service pilots will receive up to half of the third year award in the 4th year to phase down the services pilot and up to $100,000 for evaluation in year 5.  Grantees without service pilots will receive up to $100,000 for evaluation in both years 4 and 5.  Applications with proposed budgets that exceed these amounts in any year will be returned without review.

Project period: Up to 5 years, with annual continuations depending on availability of funds and progress achieved.
