CMHS Funds FY 2018 Transformation Transfer Initiative (TTI) Grants; Applications Due October 27

The Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) has announced it will fund another year of the Transformation Transfer Initiative (TTI) administered in part by NASMHPD. CMHS is expected to award six TTI contracts of $220,000 each to support programs that develop, strengthen, or sustain innovative projects or programs focusing on Recovery Oriented Cognitive Therapy. These flexible TTI funds will be used to identify, adopt, and strengthen transformative initiatives and activities that can be implemented in the state, either through a new initiative or expansion of one already underway. All proposals should focus on SMI or SED populations.

When choosing a proposed initiative, applicants should keep in mind the TTI requirement for measurable outcomes and the short period of time from proposal to implementation to reporting of initiative outcomes.

All states and territories are eligible to apply, the application is attached, and all proposals are due back to NASMHPD by October 27, 2017.

Questions regarding the TTI application or a proposal, should be directed to David Miller, NASMHPD Project Director, the staff lead on this project. Mr. Miller can be reached at 703-682-5194, or
