FY 2013 Rapid Hepatitis C Virus Screening and Referral (Short Title: HCV Screening & Referral)

Description
Grant Amount: Anticipated total $1 million, Anticipated award up to $40,000.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2013 Rapid Hepatitis C Virus Screening and Referral grants. The purpose of this program is to address the high prevalence of viral hepatitis C infection among IV drug users in selected opioid treatment programs (OTPs). In addition to providing rapid hepatitis C virus (HCV) testing, applicants must develop a plan for providing referrals for care and treatment that include, but are not limited to primary health care, public health, mental health, and medical services for those who are HCV positive or are at high-risk of HCV infection.

This program aligns with goals of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Action Plan for the Prevention, Care & Treatment of Viral Hepatitis related to addressing the need for reducing viral hepatitis related to drug use behavior. Grantees will be required to integrate efforts to prevent new viral hepatitis infections, identify hepatitis infected persons, and to provide better linkages and referrals to care and treatment. The HCV Screening & Referral program addresses the Prevention of Substance Abuse and Mental Illness strategic initiative. One of the goals of this strategic initiative is to address the high prevalence of hepatitis C infection in OTPs and to prevent the long term sequelae of HCV infection, i.e., hepatic cirrhosis and liver cancer. Rapid Hepatitis C Virus Screening and Referral is one of SAMHSA’s services grant programs. SAMHSA intends that its services grants result in the delivery of services as soon as possible after award. Service delivery should begin by the 4th month of the project at the latest.
