CFDA Number(s): 93.243
Eligible Applicants: Others (see text field entitled “Additional Information on Eligibility” for clarification)
Additional Information on Eligibility: Eligibility is limited to: • The State Education Agency (SEA), as defined by Section 9010(41) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act; or • Education Agencies/Authorities serving children and youth residing in federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes, tribal organizations, and consortia of tribes or tribal organizations. Eligibility is limited to SEAs or Education Agencies/Authorities serving AI/AN children and youth because SAMHSA believes that only they are in the unique position to leverage schools as anchor institutions to build strong partnerships that support the wide-scale adoption of AWARE-SEA services, programs, and policies. SEAs or Education Agencies/Authorities have the capacity and knowledge to assist LEAs with implementing the necessary policies, programs, and services at the community level while sharing and implementing statewide successful strategies. Through the building of interconnected state- and community-level partnerships, AWARE-SEA can promote systems integration and policy change. This program will also strengthen the ability of states and communities to develop plans to integrate educational and community-based promotion, prevention, and treatment programs for school-aged youth and their families. For Education Agencies/Authorities serving AI/AN children and youth, tribal organization means the recognized governing body of any Indian tribe; or any legally established organization of Indians which is controlled, sanctioned, or chartered by such governing body, or which is democratically elected by the adult members of the Indian community to be served by such organization and which includes the maximum participation of Indians in all phases of its activities. Consortia of tribes or tribal organizations are eligible to apply, but each participating entity must indicate its approval. A single tribe in the consortium must be the legal applicant, the recipient of the award, and the entity legally responsible for satisfying the grant requirements. Recipients who received funding under SM-14-018 (Project AWARE for State Educational Agencies) are eligible to apply but must select three different LEAs to partner with. Applicants who do not select three different LEAs will be screened-out and not considered for funding. Recipients who received funding under SM-18-006 or SM-19-003 (Project AWARE for State Education Agencies) are not eligible to apply for funding under this FOA.
