Grants to USA and territories nonprofit and for-profit organizations, academic institutions, tribes, and faith-based, community-based, and tribal organizations for training programs to benefit children and families. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to a month to complete. The purpose of this program is to support training programs that expand the number of peer support specialists and other behavioral health-related paraprofessionals who are trained to work in integrated, interprofessional teams in providing services to children whose parents are impacted by opioid use disorders (OUD) and other substance use disorders (SUD), and their family members who are in guardianship roles.

Additionally, a special focus is on demonstrating knowledge and understanding of the specific concerns for children, adolescents and transitional aged youth in high need and high demand areas who are at risk for mental health disorders and SUDs. For the purpose of this NOFO, the term “paraprofessional” refers specifically to those working in the behavioral health-related field. Additionally, this program will provide developmental opportunities and educational support to increase the number of paraprofessional trainees receiving a certificate upon completion of pre-service training (Level I training which includes didactic and experiential field training) and entering into in-service training (Level II training which includes training at a registered Department of Labor apprenticeship site).

Program Objectives:
The program objectives are to:
  1. Enhance and expand, didactic educational support and experiential field training opportunities for OIFSP paraprofessional trainees that target children, adolescents and transitional age youth whose parents are impacted by OUD and other SUDs, and their family members who are in guardianship roles. These two components (didactic and experiential field training) comprise Level I training and are further explained in the Background section.
  2. Develop, or establish a partnership with, registered apprenticeship programs to provide in-service training that places paraprofessional trainees in behavioral health-related positions addressing OUD and other SUDs. The apprenticeship program constitutes Level II training and is also further explained in the Background section.
  3. Reduce financial barriers by providing financial support to trainees in the form of tuition/fees, supplies, and stipend support.
  4. Create additional training positions beyond current program capacity to increase the number of paraprofessionals trained by a minimum of 10 percent in year one and maintain that level each year of the 4-year project period, with a focus on working with families who are impacted by OUD and other SUDs.

Over the four year period of performance, fifty percent of the budget must be dedicated to participant support (i.e., tuition/fees, and supplies plus stipends). The other fifty percent of the budget can be directed to administration and management of the project. No budget year may exceed 60 percent in administration and management costs.

Program Requirements can be found in the NOFO, page 15. See Supporting Documents below.
