SAMHSA is accepting applications for the Substance Abuse and HIV Prevention Navigator Program for Racial/Ethnic Minorities (Prevention Navigator). The purpose of this program is to provide services to those at highest risk for HIV and substance use disorders. The program proposes to use a navigation approach (Community Health Workers, Neighborhood Navigators, and Peer Support Specialists) to expedite services for these populations. The program will provide training and education around the risks of substance misuse, provide education on HIV/AIDS, and provide needed linkages to service provision for individuals with HIV.
SAMHSA plans to issue 82 grants of up to $200,000 per year for up to 5 years.
