  2. Add at least 0.5 substance use disorder and/or mental health service personnel FTE.

The period of performance is from September 1, 2019 through the end of the award recipient’s FY 2020 budget period. The application opens in EHB on April 5, 2019 and the application due date in EHB is May 13, 2019 by 5 p.m. EST.
