National Evaluation of the Technology Transfer Center Program

Application Due Date: Friday, May 17, 2019

SAMHSA is accepting applications for the National Evaluation of the Technology Transfer Center Program grant (TTC Eval). In 2018, SAMHSA reconfigured its approach to training and technical assistance by establishing a national network of regional technology transfer centers for substance abuse prevention and mental health services, in addition to the existing centers for addiction technology transfer. The fundamental premise of this new approach was the broad dissemination of evidence-based practices to best equip the healthcare workforce with the skills needed to address substance abuse prevention and the treatment of mental and substance use disorders, whether or not this workforce was a beneficiary of SAMHSA grant funding. The purpose of the National Evaluation is to gauge the extent to which this effort has been effective.

SAMHSA plans to issue 1 grant of up to $750,000 per year for up to 2 years.
