Deadline: Apr. 19, 2016

"The purpose of this program is to support an array of activities to assist grantees in building a solid foundation for delivering and sustaining quality and accessible state-of-the-science substance abuse and HIV prevention services. The program aims to engage community-level domestic public and private non-profit entities, tribes and tribal organizations to prevent and reduce the onset of SA and transmission of HIV/AIDS among at-risk populations ages 13-24, including racial/ethnic minority youth and young adults, hereafter referred to as the population of focus.

Applicants may elect to serve youth aged 13-17, young adults aged 18-24, or elect to serve both youth and young adults. SAMHSA is particularly interested in eliciting the interest of college and university clinics/wellness centers and community-based providers who can provide comprehensive substance abuse and HIV prevention strategies to reduce the impact of substance use, HIV, and viral hepatitis in high-risk communities. These strategies must combine education and awareness programs, social marketing campaigns, and HIV and viral hepatitis (VH) testing services in non-traditional settings with substance abuse and HIV prevention programming for the population of focus."
