Grants Available To Expand Treatment For Pregnant And Parenting Women

The Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse Policy (KY-ASAP) and the Kentucky Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities (KDBHDID) are partnering to distribute up to $3.2 million to expand drug treatment for pregnant and parenting women.

The funds will be distributed through a competitive grant process. Those eligible include not-for-profit providers that are licensed in Kentucky and have provided treatment for pregnant or parenting women for at least two years.

Proposals should address neonatal abstinence syndrome by developing or expanding comprehensive evidence-based residential treatment services and/or outpatient treatment and recovery support. They should also include treatment and case management services, trauma-focused treatment for the parenting mother, attachment therapy, and ongoing parenting training and support through the infant’s first year of life.

Officials from KY-ASAP and KDBHDID are hosting a mandatory teleconference to discuss technical assistance for this funding opportunity. It is scheduled for 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., July 26. The teleconference access number is 866-889-3903. The participant passcode is 3836000#.

Application materials must be submitted no later than 5 p.m. (Eastern) on Aug. 3.
