The Request for Applications (RFAs) for both the 1-year
Systems of Care Expansion Planning grants AND the 4-Year Systems of Care
Expansion Implementation cooperative agreements are now posted! Go to http://beta.samhsa.gov/grants for the
specific information. There will be a pre-applications webinar on January 13,
2014 at 3pm EST. Details will be posted on the website.
These grants are for public entities including states,
counties, cities, US Territories and federally recognized tribes and tribal
organizations. Out of the 88 currently funded Systems of Care grants, there are
14 grants awarded to tribes or organizations specifically serving a Native
American population. Historically, there have been over 35 grants to tribes
through this grant program since 1994. Tribes and tribal
organizations are strongly encouraged to consider these grants as a way to improve systems change for
mental health services to youth and families.
