SAMHSA Accepting Applications for $11 Million in Grants to Expand and
Strengthen Treatment Services for Persons Who Are Homeless

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
(SAMHSA) is accepting applications for fiscal year 2009 grants for
the Development of Comprehensive Drug/Alcohol and Mental Health
Treatment Systems for Persons Who are Homeless program. The purpose
of this program is to expand and strengthen treatment services for
persons who are homeless (including those who are chronically
homeless) and who also have substance use disorders, mental
disorders, or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders.

SAMHSA expects that up to $11 million will be available for up to 33
grants of approximately $350,000 per grant for up to five years. The
actual award amount may vary, depending on the availability of funds
and the progress achieved by the awardees. Funds are available for
grants in two categories: "General" and "Services in Supportive
Housing." Approximately $4.5 million per year of the $11 million will
be used to provide services in supportive housing. The remaining
$6.8 million will be available for "General" Treatment for Homeless
grants. The grants will be administered by SAMHSA's Center for
Substance Abuse Treatment.
