How to apply...
Standard application forms, as furnished by the Public Health Service (PHS 5161-1, Rev. July, 2000) and required by 45 CFR Part 92 for State and local governments, must be used by applicants. Grant application kits may be obtained from: Knowledge Exchange Network (KEN) at 1 (800) 789-2647.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Applications submitted are reviewed in a two- tired peer review process. Grants in support of projects recommended for approval by the initial review group and the Center for Mental Health Services Advisory Council are awarded directly to the applicant organization.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
