Grant Description
Grants to USA public and private nonprofit organizations to develop or expand direct services and substance use treatment for families and individuals experiencing periods of homelessness. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.

The purpose of this program is to provide comprehensive, coordinated, and evidence-based treatment and services for individuals, including youth, and families with substance use disorders (SUDs) or co-occurring mental health conditions and SUDs (CODs) who are experiencing homelessness. This program supports the development and/or expansion of the local implementation of a community infrastructure that integrates behavioral health treatment, peer support, recovery support services, and linkages to sustainable permanent housing.

SAMHSA funds will support three primary types of activities: 1) behavioral health outreach, treatment and recovery-oriented services; 2) coordination of housing and services to support the implementation and/or enhance long-term sustainability of integrated community systems that provide permanent housing and supportive services; and 3) efforts to engage and connect individuals with SUD or COD, who are experiencing homelessness to resources for health insurance, Medicaid, and mainstream benefits programs (e.g., Supplemental Security Income (SSI)/Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), etc.).
