| 0 comments

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has awarded grants totaling $166 million over five years through its Targeted Capacity Expansion-HIV (TCE-HIV) Program and its Prevention Navigator Program. Through the two grant programs, SAMHSA expects to fund seventy-nine grants each year up to five years. These grants will be used to prevent HIV among high-risk populations and to treat co-occurring behavioral health disorders and HIV.

“Seventy-nine agencies throughout the United States have been selected to receive grants; LIAAC is privileged to be the only agency on Long Island to receive one.” – Gail Barouh, Executive Transition Officer
