Cooperative Agreements for State (and Tribal) Adolescent and Transitional Aged Youth Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination Implementation (State Youth Treatment-Planning) – 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 Planning [State Youth Treatment – Planning (SYT-P)]. The purpose of SYT-P is to provide funding to states/territories/tribes (hereafter known as “states”) to develop a comprehensive strategic plan in order to improve treatment for adolescents (ages 12-18) and/or transitional aged youth (ages 16-25) with substance use disorders (SUD) and/or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders (hereafter known as “the population of focus”). The plan will help to assure that youth have access to evidence-based assessments and treatment models and recovery services by strengthening the existing infrastructure system. SYT-P is designed to bring together stakeholders across the systems serving adolescents and transitional aged youth to plan for a coordinated state-wide network to develop policies, expand workforce capacity, disseminate evidence-based practices (EBPs), and implement financial mechanisms and other reforms. The aim is to improve the integration and efficiency of the treatment and recovery support system serving the population of focus. SYT-P seeks to address behavioral health disparities among racial and ethnic minorities by encouraging the implementation of strategies to decrease the differences in access, service use and outcomes among the racial and ethnic minority populations served. Current Closing Date for Applications: April 06, 2015.
