Grants to Reduce Addiction, HIV Among Minority College Students


Programs designed to prevent alcohol and other drug use and HIV/AIDS among at-risk minority college students may apply for grants from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

Colleges, universities, community-level public and private nonprofits, and tribal organizations are eligible to apply for SAMHSA's FY 2010 HIV Capacity Building Initiative. A total of $40 million in grants will be awarded; SAMHSA expects to make 27 grants of up to $300,000 each.

The money will be used to “engage colleges, universities, and community-level domestic public and private non-profit organizations in an array of capacity building activities, HIV testing, and direct services using evidence-based HIV and substance abuse prevention practices targeting at-risk minority young adults,” according to SAMHSA.

Application deadline is May 17. For more details, see the full grant announcement online.
