Funding is available to support activities and events that provide awareness and education to women living in the United States and its affiliated territories on the programs, benefits, and rights under the Affordable Care Act. These activities can cover different areas of the Affordable Care Act such as preventive services, Medicare benefits, reducing health disparities, and the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan. Educational sessions should target women and provide them with information that will allow them to make informed health care decisions for themselves and their families.

PDF - Requires Adobe Acrobat ReaderSAMHSA CSAP Underage Drinking Prevention National Media Campaign Community Outreach Pilot Program RFP

November 15, 2011
The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to solicit proposals from community-based organizations (CBOs) that will contribute to carrying out the goals and objectives of the Underage Drinking Prevention National Media Campaign (the "Campaign"). The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), through its Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP), administers the Campaign.
The goal of the Campaign is to involve parents in the prevention of underage drinking by their 9-15 year old children. The Campaign strives to change a behavior that is complex. Parents will not readily accept the knowledge that underage drinking might be a problem in their home, school, or community; and once educated, they may not act upon their new knowledge immediately. Barriers to change may include denial that underage drinking is an issue, discomfort with the topic, a sense of powerlessness against what they view as an inevitable rite of passage, or lack of open communication with their child. Achieving behavior change on a broad scale will require assisting parents in building skills and forming new habits, a process not achieved in a short time frame.
Due date: November 30, 2011 5 p.m. EST (letter of intent - see RFP for proposal due date)
