The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS), is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2022 Resiliency in Communities After Stress and Trauma (Short Title: ReCAST).

Deadline: 10/17/2022

The purpose of this program is to promote resilience, trauma-informed approaches, and equity in communities that have recently faced civil unrest, community violence, and/or collective trauma within the past 24 months; and assist high-risk youth and families through the implementation of evidence-based violence prevention, and community youth engagement programs. SAMHSA expects ReCAST to be guided by a community-based coalition of residents, non-profit organizations, and other entities (e.g., health and human service providers, schools, institutions of higher education, faith-based organizations, businesses, state and local government, law enforcement, and employment, housing, and transportation services agencies).

The goals of ReCAST are the following:

§  Building a foundation to promote well-being, resiliency, and community healing and change through community-based, participatory approaches that promote community and youth engagement, leadership development, improved governance, and capacity building;

§  Creating more equitable access to trauma-informed community behavioral health resources;

§  Strengthening the integration of behavioral health services and other community systems to address the social determinants of health –, recognizing that factors such as law enforcement practices, transportation, employment, and housing policies can contribute to health outcomes;

§  Ensuring that program services are culturally competent and responsive and developmentally appropriate.

§Funding Information

§  Anticipated Award Amount: $1,000,000 per year

§  Length of Project: Up to 4 years
