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 up to six weeks to complete.

Recipients must use SAMHSA’s services grant funds primarily to support direct services. This includes the following activities:

  • Utilize established relationship with an organization that assists individuals experiencing marginal housing or homelessness to obtain housing. Recipients are required to provide direct assistance to homeless individuals to successfully gain housing.
  • Provide direct SUD treatment for individuals with SUDs or co-occurring mental and SUDs who are also experiencing homelessness. Treatment must be evidence-based and may be provided in outpatient, intensive outpatient, day treatment, or residential settings.
  • Provide linkage and coordination to obtain permanent housing for the population (s) of focus.
  • Engage and enroll the population(s) of focus or connect the population(s) of focus to enrollment resources for Medicaid and other benefits programs (e.g. SSI/SSDI, TANF, SNAP, etc.).
  • Provide recovery support services including recovery housing; employment coaching; vocational training; recovery coaching and other services designed to improve access and retention in services.

Allowable Activities:

  • Implement screening and assessment, and either direct provision of appropriate services or referral to and close coordination with other providers of appropriate services, including those funded by the Ryan White Programs.
  • Implement tobacco and vaping cessation programs for the population of focus.

SAMHSA’s services grants are intended to fund services or practices that have a demonstrated evidence base and that are appropriate for the population(s) of focus. An evidence-based practice (EBP) refers to approaches to prevention or treatment that are validated by some form of documented research evidence.
