Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 Funding Opportunity

AGENCY: Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Notice of intent to award a Single Source Grant to the National 
Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice is to inform the public that the Substance Abuse 
and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) intends to award 
approximately $600,000 (total costs) per year for up to three years to 
the National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors 
(NASADAD). This is not a formal request for applications. Assistance 
will be provided only to the National Association of State Alcohol and 
Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD) based on the receipt of a satisfactory 
application that is approved by an independent review group.
    Funding Opportunity Title: TI-08-002.
    Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 93.243.

    Authority: Section 1935 of the Public Health Service Act, as 
amended.

    Justification: Only the National Association of State Alcohol and 
Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD) is eligible to apply. The Substance 
Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is seeking to 
award a single source grant to the National Association of State 
Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD) to facilitate collaborative 
activities between SAMHSA and the States to assist SAMHSA in its 
development and implementation of the National Outcome Measures (NOMs).
    NASADAD's membership is composed of the State substance abuse 
authorities (SSAs). SSAs are the recipients of SAMHSA's Substance Abuse 
Prevention and Treatment (SAPT) Block Grant funds. Grant activities 
will focus on areas of mutual interest and will help support the 
States' ability to respond to changes brought about by the transition 
of management of the SAPT Block Grant to a performance and outcomes 
focus based upon the NOMs and other information. These collaborative 
activities will assist SAMHSA in its development, implementation and 
management of the SAPT Block Grant Program, and will assist States in 
the

development and implementation of their transition plans and to respond 
to the changes brought about by the transition.
    NASADAD is in the unique position to facilitate these activities 
because:
     NASADAD is the sole and unique organization with a direct 
official relationship with the SSAs. SSAs, which form the membership of 
NASADAD, are the only entities that may directly apply for and 
administer SAMHSA's SAPT Block Grant funds.
     The activities required under this grant program will 
require NASADAD and its members (SSAs) to provide the necessary State 
perspective regarding needs and potential changes to the State 
substance abuse treatment system practices and to their information 
system's infrastructure.
     NASADAD is the sole organization that has been utilizing, 
in support of CSAT, a Web-based process to facilitate SSA dialogue on 
NOMs.
     NASADAD's constituency and staff are a repository of 
knowledge on State issues related to substance abuse treatment 
indicators and are accountable for performance in the SAPT Block Grant. 
This knowledge is critical to the grant project.
     NASADAD has a Data Subcommittee that is essential to the 
required grant activities. In addition, NASADAD is uniquely qualified 
to conduct the required activities because of its relationship with the 
SSAs and its history of collaboration with the Federal government and 
other organizations that represent issues of importance to State 
government.
