Technical Assistance Opportunity for CoC Providers: SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access and Recovery (SOAR) TA Project
January 25, 2013
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access and Recovery (SOAR) Technical Assistance Center is accepting applications from Continuums of Care (CoCs) that have not yet participated in the federally-sponsored SOAR Technical Assistance Program.
SAMHSA’s SOAR program assists states and localities to expedite access to the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) disability programs – Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) – for persons who are homeless or at risk for homelessness and who have a mental illness, a co-occurring substance use disorder or other serious medical condition. Currently, all 50 states participate in the federally-sponsored SOAR technical assistance (TA).
CoCs are invited to submit a brief, 3-5 page application in response to the Request for Applications (RFA) to participate in the SOAR TA Project by March 15, 2013. A message of interest and intent to file an application is requested, but not required, by February 27.
