Mental Health Block Grant for Public Comment
Substance Abuse Block Grant for Public Comment
The Alabama Department of Mental Health is the Single State Agency responsible for receipt and expenditure of the Substance Abuse Block Grant (SABG) in accordance with Federal Regulations promulgated by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The SABG is a major source of funding for substance abuse prevention, treatment, and recovery support services provided throughout the state by agencies under contract with ADMH. SAMHSA requires each state to maintain an up-to-date plan for expenditure of SABG funds and to submit an annual report of activities conducted specific to these expenditures. In addition, SAMHSA oversees implementation of the Synar Amendment, which requires states to have laws prohibiting the sale and distribution of tobacco products to minors. ADMH provides an ongoing opportunity for the public to review and submit comments on the development and implementation of Alabama’s SABG annual plan and report, as well as the annual SYNAR report.
