From the National Indian Child Welfare Association:
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is accepting applications for Systems of Care grants to support mental health services and systems for children, youth, and families in tribal communities.
The purpose of this infrastructure program is to provide tribal communities with the tools and resources to implement or expand a community-based, coordinated system of care model for children’s mental health.
Applications filed now are for funding beginning in October 2017.
NICWA facilitated a recorded webinar on November 10, 2016, to:
- Explain the purpose and goals of the funding opportunity;
- Walk through each element of the FOA and provide tips for successful applications;
- Encourage tribal applications; and
- Answer questions
Learn more about the grant at the SAMHSA website.
Tribal applications are encouraged! The deadline is January 3, 2017.
