SAMHSA Funding Opportunity

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2013 for Cooperative Agreements for State Adolescent and Transitional Aged Youth Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination. The purpose of this program is to provide funding to states/territories/tribes to improve treatment for adolescents and transitional aged youth through the development of a learning laboratory with collaborating local community-based treatment provider sites. Through the shared experience between the state/territory/tribe and the local community-based treatment provider sites, an evidence-based practice (EBP) will be implemented, adolescents, transitional aged youth, and their families/primary caregivers will be provided services, and a feedback loop will be developed to enable the state/territory/tribe and the sites to identify barriers and test solutions through a services component operating in real time.
