Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA public and private nonprofit organizations to address health differences that are linked with economic, social, and/or environmental disadvantages. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to six weeks to complete. Funding is intended for the development and provision of training and technical assistance to healthcare practitioners.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2020 Centers of Excellence (CoE) for Behavioral Health Disparities (Short Title: CoE-BH Disparities). The purpose of this program is to establish three Centers of Excellence to develop and disseminate training and technical assistance for healthcare practitioners on issues related to addressing behavioral health disparities. It is expected that the recipients will implement training and technical assistance for practitioners to address the disparities in behavioral healthcare in three key populations: African Americans, LGBTQ, and the aging population. SAMHSA will fund three Centers, each of which will focus on one of these populations.

In particular, three subpopulations that are significantly impacted by behavioral health disparities are African Americans, the LGBTQ community, and older individuals. Therefore, SAMHSA will make three grant awards to support:

  • One CoE addressing behavioral health disparities impacting African Americans
  • One CoE addressing behavioral health disparities impacting the LGBTQ community
  • One CoE addressing behavioral health disparities impacting older individuals (age 60 and over)
