Grants to USA and Territories nonprofits, for-profits, and state and tribal agencies for programs to assist youth impacted by substance abuse. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations well in advance of the deadline. Funding is intended for local or statewide mentoring services to improve outcomes such as academic performance and reduced school dropout rates.
This program supports the implementation and delivery of mentoring services to youth who are currently abusing or addicted to drugs (including opioids and methamphetamine), youth at risk for abusing drugs, and youth with family members who are currently abusing or addicted to drugs. Mentoring services can be one-to-one, group, peer, or a combination. Funding can be used to support new mentoring matches or continue existing mentoring matches at the time of application.
Funding may be used to support supplemental activities as part of the proposed mentoring model; however, only up to 20 percent of the total amount of project funds can be used to support other nonmentoring direct services, such as mental health/substance abuse treatment, residential placement services, or other supportive services identified and aligned with the project design.
The following provides additional details for the two categories under this solicitation:
Category 1: Mentoring Strategies for Youth Impacted by Opioids and Drug Addiction (Project Sites). The focus of this category is to provide mentoring services as part of a prevention, treatment, and supportive approach for those youth impacted by unlawful or addictive drug use.
Category 2: Statewide and Regional Mentoring Strategies for Youth Impacted by Opioids and Drug Addiction. This category supports a broad-based approach to building mentoring program capacity in targeted regions throughout the country to help youth impacted by unlawful or addictive drug use.
