Funding Opportunities

SAMHSA recently announced the following funding opportunity for fiscal year 2010:

Peer-to-Peer Recovery Support Services (Application due date: February 10, 2010)―up to 6 grant awards, each about $350,000 per year for up to 4 years, to deliver and evaluate peer-to-peer recovery services that help prevent relapse and promote sustained recovery from alcohol and drug use disorders. Applicants are expected to provide peer-to-peer recovery support services that are responsive to community needs and strengths and to carry out a performance assessment of these services.

The Recovery Community Services Program is intended to support peer leaders from the recovery community in providing recovery support services to people in recovery and their family members and to foster the growth of communities of recovery that will help individuals and families achieve and sustain long-term recovery.

SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment will administer the grants, which will total $8.8 million over 4 years. (TI-10-010, $8.8 million)
