SAMHSA Awards Applications Due Feb. 27

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is asking for applications by Feb. 27 for its 2009 Science and Service Awards, which recognize community-based organizations successful at implementing evidence-based mental health and substance abuse interventions. Awards will be made in five categories: substance abuse prevention, treatment of substance abuse and recovery support services, mental health promotion, treatment of mental illness and recovery support services, and co-occurring disorders.

Public- and private-sector organizations are eligible to compete for these non-monetary awards, but developers of an evidence-based intervention or their research collaborators, previous award winners, and federal agencies are not. Applications will be rated using these four criteria: community need, sustainability, accurate implementation, and results.

Complete information is available at www.samhsa.gov/scienceandservice; click on "Application Materials for 2009 Awards." Applications must be e-mailed by Feb. 27 to Michelle Duda, Science and Service Awards coordinator, at duda@mail.fpg.unc.edu or postmarked by midnight Feb. 27 and mailed to Dean Fixsen, Ph.D., FPG Child Development Institute, CB #8040 UNC Campus, Chapel Hill, NC 27599-8040.
