Cooperative Agreements for State (and Tribal) Adolescent and Transitional Aged Youth Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination Implementation (State Youth Treatment-Implementation) – Eligible applicants are the entity within the state/territory/federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native tribe or tribal organization responsible for leading treatment and recovery support services for adolescents and/or transitional aged youth with substance use disorder or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2015 Cooperative Agreements for State Adolescent and Transitional Aged Youth Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination Implementation [State Youth Treatment – Implementation (SYT-I)]. The purpose of this program is to provide funding to states/territories/tribes (hereafter known as states) to improve treatment for adolescents and/or transitional aged youth with substance use disorders (SUD) and/or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders (hereafter known as “the population of focus”) by assuring youth state-wide access to evidence-based assessments, treatment models, and recovery services supported by the strengthening of the existing infrastructure system. Based on need, applicants may choose to provide services to adolescents (ages 12-18) and their families/primary care givers, transitional aged youth (ages 16-25) and their families/primary caregivers, or both these populations and their families/primary caregivers. Applicants that select transitional aged youth may chose a subset of this population of focus (e.g., ages 16-18, ages 18-21, ages 21-25). SYT-I is a combination of infrastructure improvement and direct treatment service delivery. These grants are designed to bring together stakeholders across the systems serving the population of focus to strengthen an existing coordinated network that will enhance/expand treatment services, develop policies, expand workforce capacity, disseminate evidence-based practices, and implement financial mechanisms and other reforms to improve the integration and efficiency of substance use disorders treatment, and recovery support system. Current Closing Date for Applications: April 02, 2015.
