The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), in conjunction with the Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) and the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is now accepting applications for its Law Enforcement Behavioral Health Partnership for Early Diversion (also known as Early Diversion) grants. This initiative seeks to establish partnerships between law enforcement and behavioral healthcare providers in order to screen, treat, assess, and refer individuals with mental health issues and/or co-occurring substance use disorders before arrest, in order to prevent recidivism and maintain public safety. SAMHSA anticipates distributing three (3) awards, each with an annual ceiling of $322,222. Applicants will be required to provide a non-federal match for the CMHS portion of this funding opportunity (approximately $222,222 of each award). Project periods can last up to three years, and SAMHSA mandates that program services should commence no later than six months after funding has been received. Applications are due on May 31, 2013.
