SAMHSA Announces Disaster Response Grant Programs

SAMHSA is accepting applications for two separate Disaster Response Grant Programs – School-Based Services and Services for Adults. The purpose of each grant program is to provide mental and substance use disorder treatment, crisis counseling, and other related supports to children in school-based settings and adults impacted by Hurricanes Florence and Michael; Typhoon Mangkhut; Super Typhoon Yutu; wildfires and earthquakes occurring in 2018; and tornadoes and floods occurring in 2019, in those areas for which a major disaster or emergency was declared under section 401 or 501 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, including activities authorized under section 319(a) of the Public Health Service Act. SAMHSA recognizes the impact natural disasters can have and is providing funding to mitigate this impact.
