SAMHSA is accepting applications for the Expansion of Practitioner Education (Prac-Ed) grant. The purpose of this program is to expand the integration of substance use disorder (SUD) education into the standard curriculum of relevant healthcare and health services education programs. Through the mainstreaming of this education, the ultimate goal is to expand the number of practitioners to deliver high-quality, evidence-based SUD treatment. The National Survey on Drug Use and Health 2018 data indicate that an unacceptably high 92% of individuals who meet criteria for needing SUD treatment do not receive it. SAMHSA is implementing this program as one of the many steps to reduce barriers to accessing and providing care.
SAMHSA plans to issue 10-20 grants of up to $250,000 per year for up to 2 years.
SAMHSA is accepting applications for Grants for the Benefit of Homeless Individuals (GBHI). The purpose of this program is to support the development and/or expansion of local implementation of a community infrastructure that integrates substance use disorder treatment, housing services, and other critical services for individuals (including youth) and families experiencing homelessness.
SAMHSA plans to issue 13 grants of up to $400,000 per year for up to 5 years.
