$52M Initiative Targets Substance Abuse, HIV

 ROCKVILLE, MD  — The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is awarding up to $52.5 million for up to five years in cooperative agreements (grants) to provide integrated substance abuse and HIV/AIDS prevention services to at-risk, traditionally underserved populations. 

 
The Ready-To-Respond (RTR) initiative is designed to prevent substance use among high-risk, traditionally underserved populations (including racial and ethnic minority populations) and reduce the incidence of new HIV infection. The goal of the program is to engage experienced community-level domestic public and private nonprofit entities in preventing and reducing substance abuse and new HIV infection. 
 
Under the terms of this program awardees will develop comprehensive strategies for promoting prevention services in substance abuse and HIV in their communities – including programs for providing HIV testing and evidence-based HIV and substance abuse prevention practices.
 
A total of 35 grant awards of up to $300,000 per year will be made to each grantee for up to five years. Annual continuation awards will depend on the availability of funds, grantee progress in meeting project goals and objectives, timely submission of required data and reports and compliance with all terms and conditions of awards.
