National Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions

Application Due Date: Friday, March 29, 2019
SAMHSA is accepting applications for National Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS) grants. The purpose of this program is to advance the implementation of high quality, evidence-based treatment for individuals with co-occurring physical and mental health conditions, including substance use disorders. Data demonstrate that individuals with mental health conditions are far more likely to also experience physical health conditions. The co-occurrence of these conditions necessitates the delivery of holistic, integrated care. The goal of this grant is to ensure that these services are provided in the most effective manner possible.
SAMHSA plans to issue 1 grant of up to $2,000,000 per year for up to 5 years.

HMIS Capacity Building NOFA Deadline Reminder: Applications Due Thursday, January 31, 2019
There are 3 days remaining until the application submission deadline for the HMIS Capacity Building Project Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). Unless you have received an extension from HUD, all applications must be submitted by Thursday, January 31, 2019 by 11:59:59 PM EST.
Applications shall be submitted to Grants.gov unless a waiver has been issued allowing you to submit your application in paper form. Instructions for submitting your paper application will be contained in the waiver of electronic submission. As a reminder, “Received by Grants.gov” means the applicant received a confirmation of receipt and an application tracking number from Grants.gov. Then Grants.gov assigns an application tracking number and date-and time-stamps each application upon successful receipt by the Grants.gov system. A submission attempt not resulting in confirmation of receipt and an application tracking number is not considered received by Grants.gov. For more information, please see Section IV.D. of the HMIS Capacity Building Project NOFA.
HUD strongly recommends applications be submitted at least 48 hours before the deadline and during regular business hours to allow enough time to correct errors or overcome other problems.

How to Apply

Applicants must be existing CoC program recipients that are Unified Funding Agencies (UFAs), collaborative applicants, or HMIS Leads. The CoC will either:
  1. Apply to improve their existing HMIS.
    • Eligible activities: increase software functionality, improve data quality, and grow staff knowledge.
  2. Apply on behalf of two or more CoCs with the intent to execute an HMIS Consolidation to improve the performance of lower-performing HMISs.
    • Eligible activities: consolidate HMIS implementations, increase software functionality, improve data quality, and grow staff knowledge.
Applications are due January 31, 2019.
CoCs can look at their most recent HUD Data Exchange (HDX) submissions (i.e. bed coverage, Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR), and data quality) to help assess need. For HMIS Consolidations, CoCs can look at the Appendix of the NOFA to identify high-need HMISs that, when consolidated with high performing HMISs, may be competitive for the improvement and consolidation funds provided in the NOFA.



If you have questions pertaining to HMIS Capacity Building Project NOFA, please submit your questions to the Ask A Question (AAQ) portal on the HUD Exchange website and select “HMIS” from the “My question is related to” drop down list on Step 2 of the question submission process.
The AAQ portal accepts question submissions 24/7. However, responses are usually provided between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, except for weekends and federal holidays. Additionally, per the HMIS Capacity Building Project NOFA, starting 2 days prior to the application deadline, the AAQ will respond only to emergency technical support questions up to the deadline of Thursday, January 31, 2019 at 11:59:59 PM EDT.
