The Alliance for Strong Families and Communities Public Policy Team is interested in connecting with members who have been or are planning to be part of a Regional Partnership Grant.As posted on the SAMHSA website,  the regional partnership grants were administered by the Administration for Children and Families’ Children’s Bureau to improve outcomes for children and families. It represented the broadest federal program ever launched to assist states, tribes, and communities across the nation to improve the well-being, permanency, and safety outcomes of children who are in out-of-home placement as a result of a parent’s or caregiver’s methamphetamine or other substance abuse, or are at risk of such placement.  

The 2018 fiscal year Omnibus Appropriations Act doubled Regional Partnership Grant funding that will be eligible for prevention funding under Family First Act.  

If your organization has been involved in a regional partnership or is part of newly formed effort as a result of the additional funding, let the Alliance know by emailing Carla Plaza, director of public policy and government relations.
