The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is accepting applications for the Targeted Capacity Expansion-HIV Program: Substance Use Disorder Treatment for Racial/Ethnic Minority Populations at High Risk for HIV/AIDS totaling up to $142.9 million over the course of five years. The purpose of this program is to increase engagement in care for racial and ethnic minority individuals with substance use disorders and/or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders who are at risk for HIV or HIV positive that receive HIV services/treatment. The program also aims to contribute to the nation’s achievement of the 90-90-90 goals regarding HIV status and treatment. SAMHSA expects to fund up to 57 grantees with up to $500,000 per year for up to five years. The actual award amount may vary, depending on the availability of funds.
Eligible applicants are local-level public and private nonprofit entities that provide substance use and co-occurring services, and have established linkages to primary HIV services. Such entities include local governments, federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native tribes and tribal organizations, urban Indian organizations, public or private universities and colleges; and community-and faith-based organizations.
