Targeted Capacity Expansion: Substance Abuse Treatment for Racial/Ethnic Minority Women at High Risk for HIV/AIDS (Short Title: TCE-HIV: Minority Women)
Grant Amount: Anticipated Total Available Funding: $18.195 million; Anticipated Award Amount: Up to $520,000 per year.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2013 Targeted Capacity Expansion: Substance Abuse Treatment for Racial/Ethnic Minority Women at High Risk for HIV/AIDS (TCE-HIV: Minority Women) grants. The purpose of this program is to expand substance abuse treatment and HIV services for African American, Hispanic/Latina and other racial/ethnic minority women (ages 18 years and older), including heterosexual, lesbian, bisexual, previously incarcerated women, and their significant others, who have substance use or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders and are living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS.
The goals of this program are to: (1) reduce HIV infection and transmission rates among African American, Hispanic/Latina and other racial/ethnic minority women, including reducing alcohol, marijuana, cocaine and injecting drug use (IDU); (2) address the impact of violence and trauma on women's increased risk of substance abuse and HIV infection; (3) increase access to culturally appropriate, women and family centered, trauma-informed substance abuse/co-occurring mental health treatment and HIV/viral hepatitis services, including HIV and hepatitis B and C testing; (4) educate and empower African American, Hispanic/Latina and other racial/ethnic minority women to increase their awareness of safer sex practices (e.g., condom use) and make informed decisions about their behavioral health, including trauma-related HIV risk-behaviors; and (5) implement evidence-based interventions.
Although progress has been made with respect to addressing risk behaviors, it is clear that more progress is needed. Data from CSAT's HIV programs demonstrate positive outcomes on domains such as injection drug use, unprotected sexual contacts, and unprotected sexual contact with someone with HIV, someone who is using intravenous (IV) drugs, or someone who is under the influence of substance(s) such as alcohol and/or other drugs.
