LAUNCH Together community planning grants available

The LAUNCH Together initiative is inspired and informed by SAMHSA's Project LAUNCH (Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children's Health) initiative and Colorado Project LAUNCH partners. LAUNCH Together is inviting applications from Colorado communities interested in expanding evidence-based prevention and promotion practices and building coordinated systems to support the wellness of children with a focus on behavioral health and social and emotional development.

LAUNCH Together aims to 1) invest in communities to plan and implement effective community-based strategies and train professionals in a variety of settings; 2) bring together public and private partners to communicate what works, raise awareness and support policy changes to sustain effective community practices; and 3) evaluate the project and provide technical assistance to grantees.

Grants awarded through this funding opportunity will support communities in conducting a comprehensive planning process, including an environmental scan of systems and programs in the grantee's community as well as development of a strategic plan to guide the work.

Due Date for Applications: Oct.19, 2015, 5:00 p.m. MST
Estimated Number of Awards: Up to 7
Estimated Award Amount: Up to $55,000 per award
