Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA nonprofit organization to improve healthcare among underserved populations. Applicants are advised to verify or create the required registrations well in advance of the deadline date. The purpose of the program is to educate mental health professionals about substance abuse disorders among racial and ethnic minority populations and to improve the quality of care provided to them.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is accepting applications for the fiscal year (FY) 2020 Minority Fellowship Program (Short Title: MFP). The purpose of this program is to increase the knowledge of mental health professionals on issues related to prevention, treatment, and recovery support for individuals who are from racial and ethnic minority populations and have a mental or co-occurring mental and substance use disorder (COD), and to improve the quality of care provided to these individuals.

Racial and ethnic minority populations with mental and substance use disorders have been historically underserved due to a variety of factors. These include a limited number of post-baccalaureate (including master’s and doctoral level) trained professionals in psychiatry, psychology, nursing, social work, marriage and family therapy, mental health counseling, and substance use and addictions counseling who are equipped with the skills and cultural competencies needed to deliver effective services to racial and ethnic minority populations. The MFP increases behavioral health professionals’ knowledge of issues related to prevention, treatment, and recovery support for mental illness and drug/alcohol use disorders among racial and ethnic minority populations.
