GBA Congratulates Grant Writers and Clients for a Successful Year of SAMHSA Grant Submissions

Updated: Apr 10

Gary Bess Associates offers expert, full-service grant writing assistance to non-profits and public agencies across the United States. Our service includes comprehensive funder searches, creating easy-to-digest summaries of complex grant announcements, assistance with program design, drafting narratives, establishing need through secondary data, preparing attachments and other materials required by the funder, and grant submissions via electronic portals. GBA assists clients in submitting applications to private foundations, corporations, county contracts/bids, state-funded opportunities, and federal grant programs.


Obtaining federal funding is often a cornerstone contributing to our client's organizational sustainability. As a firm that supports agencies in the healthcare and behavioral health industry, GBA often assists clients in applying for Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) funding. This year, there was a high demand for assistance obtaining SAMHSA funding! Our team assisted 14 clients across five (5) states in submitting six (6) different SAMHSA grant programs—all with submission deadlines in Spring 2022—with SAMHSA making announcements of new grantees in September 2023 and most project periods just underway.

GBA congratulates its clients who were awarded funding! In total, GBA clients received $29,750,000 in SAMHSA funding this year.

  • Three (3) clients were awarded Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic, Improvement and Advancement (CCBHC-IA) grants; each grant totals $4M for a four-year project period.

  • Two (2) clients were awarded Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic, Planning, Development, and Implementation (CCBHC-PDI) grants; each grant totals $4M for a four-year project period.

  • One (1) client was awarded a Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children's Health (Project Launch); a total of $4M for a five-year project period.

  • Three (3) clients received Minority AIDS Initiative: The Substance Use and Human Immunodeficiency Virus Prevention Navigator Program for Racial/Ethnic Minorities (Prevention Navigator) grants; each grant totals $1.5M for a five-year project period.

  • One (1) client was awarded a Native Connections grant; a total of $1.25M for a three-year project period.

It is our honor to collaborate with dedicated, innovative, and hard-working clients nationwide. GBA wishes each client much success as they implement these newly funded programs.
