Announcement for the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP): Open Submission Period for Fiscal Year 2014
The mission of SAMHSA is to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America's communities. Established in 1992, the Agency was directed by Congress to target effective substance abuse and mental health services to the people most in need and to translate research in these areas more effectively and more rapidly into the general health care system. NREPP is a key public resource SAMHSA has developed to help meet this directive. As of June 2013, approximately 290 interventions developed in the U.S. and abroad have been reviewed and added to the registry. This notice announces NREPP's open submission period for fiscal year 2014, during which program developers may submit a request to have their intervention reviewed. The notice provides information about the documentation that submissions must include to demonstrate that an intervention meets NREPP's minimum requirements; the responsibilities of the Principal during the review process; and the process for submitting materials for review during the open submission period.
