Questions - Posted 11/14/2014

1)      What is the total funding available?

Total funding set aside for this project for State Fiscal Year 15-16 is $1,000,000.  Funding shall be granted for directly funded community grants and independent program evaluation.

2)      The maximum award amount per agency/location?

No maximum award was set.  Awards will be based upon need and the number of meritorious applications.

3)      The title on the email stated “Substance Abuse and Suicide Prevention”  yet the description under #1 only discusses “substance abuse prevention plan that positively impacts substance use and mental health.”  Further on in the application suicide is again referenced.  Can you clarify if this is a project to implement a “substance abuse prevention plan” or if this project targets substance abuse, mental health and suicide prevention?

This primary purpose of this grant is to support community-based programs that produce measurable outcomes designed to reduce harm associated with substance abuse.  This may include programs that promote mental health, provided demonstrable behavioral outcomes are generated.

4)      Can you indicate where the funding for this grant is coming from?

Funding is a combination of state general funds and federal funds.

5)      Does the division have an idea of how many projects are going to be funded?

This is dependent upon the number of meritorious applications.
