Tech grants from SAMHSA

SAMHSA is accepting applications for up to $10.9 million in Technology-Assisted Care in Targeted Areas of Need grants

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is accepting applications for Technology-Assisted Care in Targeted Areas of Need (TCE-TAC) grants totaling up to approximately $10.9 million over the next three years.  The purpose of this program is to expand and/or enhance the capacity of substance abuse treatment providers to serve persons in treatment who have been underserved because of lack of access to treatment in their immediate community due to a variety of factors (e.g., lack of transportation, limited supply of substance abuse treatment providers, etc.).
By providing greater access to the use of technology such as web-based services, smart phones, and behavioral health electronic applications (e-apps), TCE-TAC grants will enhance and/or expand the ability of providers to reach out to people in treatment, as well as track and monitor their health so that providers can help ensure services are available where and when they are needed.
This grant program is expected to provide up to an estimated 13 grants to be awarded up to $280,000 a year each for up to three years. The actual award amounts may vary, depending on the availability of funds.
WHO CAN APPLY:  Eligible applicants are domestic public and private non-profit entities. [See Section III-1 of this RFA for complete eligibility information.]
