SDM-TAP Grants and Contracts

The Council has a total of $3,000,000 available to fund a maximum of five (5) SDM-TAP grant projects in two (2) areas of implementation: professional and family/individual. The Council will consider all proposal submissions and choose one (1) or more, but no more than five (5), with a minimum award of $150,000 and a maximum award of $800,000 per application that will not exceed the full $3,000,000 budgeted amount, subject to funding availability. The intended outcome is to increase awareness and successful implementation of SDM statewide, especially in underserved communities.

The Council is highly motivated in requesting proposals from qualified candidates. Please read the SDM-TAP Grant Guidelines carefully and include information in this application that will fully meet all of the stated requirements.
