    Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)


    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2020 Residential Treatment for Pregnant and Postpartum Women grant program (Short Title: PPW). The purpose of this program is to provide pregnant and postpartum women treatment for substance use disorders through programs in which, during the course of receiving treatment, 1) the women reside in or receive treatment services from facilities provided by the programs; 2) the minor children of the women reside with the women in such facilities, if the women so request; and 3) the services are available to or on behalf of the women.

    The populations of focus are low-income (according to federal poverty guidelines) women, age 18 and over, who are pregnant, postpartum (the period after childbirth up to 12 months), and their minor children, age 17 and under, who have limited access to quality health services. SAMHSA has identified traditionally underserved populations, especially racial and ethnic minority women, as a population of focus. SAMHSA is particularly concerned about the high morbidity and mortality rates of pregnant women and their infants among African Americans. Services should be extended, when deemed appropriate, to fathers of the children, partners of the women, and other family members of the women and children who do not reside in the residential treatment facility.

    The PPW program supports evidence-based parenting and treatment models including trauma-specific services in a trauma-informed context, which will:

    • Decrease the misuse of prescription drugs, alcohol, tobacco, illicit and other harmful drugs (e.g., inhalants) among pregnant and postpartum women;
    • Increase safe and healthy pregnancies;
    • Improve birth outcomes; Reduce perinatal and environmentally related effects of maternal and/or paternal drug abuse on infants and children;
    • Improve the mental and physical health of the women and children;
    • Prevent mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders among the children;
    • Improve parenting skills, family functioning, economic stability, and quality of life;
    • Decrease involvement in and exposure to crime, violence, and neglect; and
    • Decrease physical, emotional, and sexual abuse for all family members.
