$12.2M In Grants For Minority Fellowship Programs Available

WASHINGTON - The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration ( SAMHSA ), is accepting applications for $12.2 million in Minority Fellowship Program ( MFP ) grants over the next three years.


The purpose of this grant program is to increase the number of culturally competent behavioral health professionals available to underserved populations in the public and private non-profit sectors.

The mental health and substance abuse needs of racial and ethnic minority communities within the United States have been historically underserved by behavioral health practitioners who may not have been trained to be sensitive to cultural issues or be equipped with the language skills that promote effective services delivery.

SAMHSA has demonstrated that prevention works, treatment is effective, and people recover from mental and substance use disorders. Behavioral health services improve health status and reduce health care and other costs to society. To continue to improve the delivery and financing of prevention, treatment and recovery support services, SAMHSA has identified eight Strategic Initiatives to focus the Agency’s work on people and emerging opportunities.

SAMHSA is projected to provide approximately $4 million each year over the next three years for the minority fellowship program. Each of the five selected grantees may receive $300,000 to $900,000 per year for the next three years. Actual award amounts may vary depending on the availability of funds and the performance of the grantees.
