The federal SAPT Block Grant provides considerable funds to all 50 states and territories to help them in their prevention, intervention and treatment efforts.
In South Carolina, DAODAS is the Single State Authority for such matters and is responsible for applying for the SAPT Block Grant each year. After the application is approved by the federal Department of Health and Human Services (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration [SAMHSA]), DAODAS uses sub-grants and contracts to provide the bulk of the funds to the community level, primarily to the county alcohol and drug abuse authorities.
Basically, the application consists of three parts:
DAODAS submits the application online at a special Internet site, except for the legal forms, assurances and funding agreements, which are mailed directly to SAMHSA.
