Funding Announcement

Youth Regional Treatment Center Funding Announcement

Deadline for application submission: November 12, 2017

This notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) is specific to Youth Regional Treatment Center (YRTC) Aftercare. Proposed projects should focus on addressing the need of establishing appropriate aftercare services that can be culturally adapted to assist AI/AN youth in their recovery journey once they leave YRTC care. By exploring solutions for how this continuum of care should take place after inpatient treatment, efforts will be made to establish community-based approaches to reduce alcohol and substance use relapse and establish effective reintegration processes. This funding opportunity is open to Tribes and IHS Federal facilities that operate one of the 11 YRTCs.
