    SAMHSA has several programs that offer discretionary grant funding. The primary source of funds is the Knowledge Development and Application (KD&A) program. The goal of this program is to develop new knowledge about ways to improve the prevention and treatment of substance abuse and mental illness, and to work with State and local governments as well as providers, families, and consumers to apply that knowledge effectively in everyday practice. KD&A grants will not provide operating funds for service programs, except as required by the knowledge development activity. However, SAMHSA does have other programs available to fund some crucial services programs.

    USASpending.gov
    http://www.usaspending.gov/
    Much of what the US government does revolves around money. USASpending.gov provides users with the capability to mine this type of data, at least in terms of federal contracts, grants, and other awards. The amount of money involved is quite staggering--over $17.5 trillion for FY2000-FY2009. This new database owes a lot to Barack Obama, who cosponsored legislation in 2006 for the creation of a single searchable Web site on government spending. Meanwhile OMB Watch developed FedSpending.org, whose same software forms the basis for USASpending.gov. Those interested in contracts by state can look at rankings. Not satisfied? Dig down by contractor name, DUNS number, city, congressional district, ZIP code, contractor type, NAICS category, etc., or pull up the entire list of contractors or individual transactions. Other search options include place of performance, contracting agency, and product or service provided....Similar information is available for grants. Users may search by recipient name, DUNS number, city, county, ZIP code, congressional district, or recipient category (government, higher education, nonprofits, individuals, for profits, other), or pull up the entire list of recipients or transactions. Wondering how current the data is? Click on Data Quality to determine when federal agencies submitted data or whether they supplied data at all. Federal contract data is derived from the Federal Procurement Data System; data for financial assistance such as grants, loans, insurance, and direct subsidies like Social Security is derived from the Federal Assistance Award Data System. A FAQ page answers questions such as "Can I print out tables?" and "Can I download data or search results?" USASpending.gov is still not 100 percent complete; e.g., subcontracts and subgrants are still under development. The site provides more information on all its facets through an 800 number.

    A Note About Government Grant Scams


    Secrets Revealed! Let Uncle Sam Pay Your Bills!
    How Misleading Advertising Is Feeding A Nationwide Boom in Government Grant Scams

    The business of government grants is thriving. Companies selling guides to government grants -- and scam artists peddling "guaranteed" government grants -- are profiting from the false notion that the government has billions of dollars available to help people pay their credit-card bills and other expenses. This is due, in part, to the exaggerations and misleading claims spread by Matthew Lesko and the nationwide network of Lesko distributers....(Excerpt) A report by the New York State Consumer Protection Board, Dec. 2004, 33pp.
    For more information about Lesko, see an article by Dave Jamieson called "The Culler of Money" appearing in the Washington (DC) City Paper, June 17–23, 2005.

    There's a Scam Artist Born Every Minute. Yeesh. The Nigerian scam apparently wasn't enough for the con artists who troll the Internet and roam the nation's phone systems. Now they're telling people they're from the "Government Grant Association" or the "Federal Government Grant Information Center," and if you only fork over $250, you'll get an $8,000 grant from Uncle Sam. Please don't be suckered by this. Source: GovExec.com FedBlog, Dec. 23, 2004.


    Federal Government Grants : No Free Lunch
    http://usgovinfo.about.com/library/weekly/aa060400a.htm
    Contrary to what a very popular book and TV ad say, the U.S. government is not giving away "free grant" money. A grant is not a Christmas present. According to American Government & Politics, by Jay M. Shafritz, a grant is, "A form of gift that entails certain obligations on the part of the grantee and expectations on the part of the grantor." The key word there is obligations. Getting a government grant will get you loads of them and not fulfilling them will grant you a load of legal troubles.
