SAMHSA is accepting applications for the State Pilot Grant Program for Treatment for Pregnant and Postpartum Women (PPW-PLT). The purpose of the program is to enhance flexibility in the use of funds designed to:
1) Support family-based services for pregnant and postpartum women with a primary diagnosis of a substance use disorder, including opioid use disorders;
2) Help state substance abuse agencies address the continuum of care, including services provided to pregnant and postpartum women in nonresidential-based settings; and
3) Promote a coordinated, effective, and efficient state system managed by state substance abuse agencies by encouraging new approaches and models of service delivery.
SAMHSA plans to issue 5 grants of up to $900,000 per year for up to 3 years.
