Additional Information on Eligibility:
SAMHSA is limiting eligibility for this program to consumer-controlled organizations only that are domestic public and private nonprofit entities, tribal and urban Indian organizations, and/or community- and faith-based organizations. A primary goal of the program is to strengthen the capacity of consumers to act as agents of transformation in influencing the type and amount of services, so they must be an integral part of an organization that supports individuals with a serious mental illness or who have received public mental health services, and ensures that their mental health care is consumer driven with access to recovery support services. Therefore, only organizations controlled and managed by mental health consumers are eligible to apply.
Consumer-controlled organizations must meet the following requirements:
• An applicant organization must be dedicated to the improvement of mental health services Statewide.
• An applicant organization must complete the Certificate of Eligibility (see Appendix K of the RFA document) indicating that the applicant meets all eligibility requirements.
In order to strengthen and expand the impact of this program across the nation and ensure broad geographic distribution, SAMHSA will make only one award per state, territory, or tribe, and is limiting eligibility to applicants in states, territories, and tribes that do not have a currently funded Statewide Consumer Network grant.
See Appendix L of the RFA document for a listing of states, territories, and tribes with a currently funded Statewide Consumer Network grant. Organizations located in these jurisdictions are not eligible to apply. Tribes, regardless of location, are eligible to apply providing they do not have a currently funded grant.
The statutory authority for this program prohibits grants to for-profit agencies
