Services Grant Program for Residential Treatment for Pregnant and Postpartum Women (Short Title: PPW)

Funding Agency:
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2017 Residential Treatment for Pregnant and Postpartum Women (PPW) grant program. The purpose of this program is to expand comprehensive treatment, prevention and recovery support services for women and their children in residential substance use treatment facilities, including services for non-residential family members of both the women and children.

The populations of focus are low-income (according to federal poverty guidelines) women, age 18 and over, who are pregnant, postpartum (the period after childbirth up to 12 months), and their minor children, age 17 and under, who have limited access to quality health services. SAMHSA has identified traditionally underserved populations, especially racial and ethnic minority women, as a population of focus. SAMHSA is particularly concerned about the high morbidity and mortality rates of pregnant women and their infants among African Americans. Services should be extended, when deemed appropriate, to fathers of the children, partners of the women, and other family members of the women and children who do not reside in the residential treatment facility.

Deadline: Apr. 17, 2017
