Transforming Lives Through Supported Employment Program

Application Due Date: Monday, May 1, 2023

The purpose of this program is to support state and community efforts to refine, implement, and sustain evidence-based supported employment programs and mutually compatible and supportive evidence-based practices (e.g., supported education) for adults with serious mental illness (SMI) or co-occurring mental and substance use disorders (COD). The awards provide resources to help individuals with SMI or COD achieve competitive employment and build paths to self-sufficiency and recovery. SAMHSA plans to issue 6 awards for $4,870,995 up to $800,000 per year per award for up to 5 years.
