Cross-Site Evaluation of Project LAUNCH (Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children's Health), 2008-2018 | Learn more about this project

Project LAUNCH (Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children’s Health) is a federal grant program administered by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Grants provide funding to communities for five years, pursuing dual goals of improving systems and services for young children and their families.   As of September, 2011, 24 grantees (in three separate cohorts) were funded, all of them representing areas with a high need for services.  This report describes program implementation from initial funding in September 2008 through September 2011.  These interim findings provide a cumulative picture of the program, but reflect grantees at very different implementation stages of their grant program.
