End Authority

Justification: Only the Tarzana Treatment Center, Reseda, CA is eligible to apply. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is seeking to award a single source grant to the Tarzana Treatment Center. Competition is limited to the Tarzana Treatment Center because it is presently funded through the Mental Health HIV Services Collaborative program. Several factors support the justification of a single source award to the intended applicant in order to maintain the integrity and consistency of the services of this grant activity. The grant award was for three years instead of five years because of an error in the application process. The current grant ends September 30, 2009. The Tarzana Treatment Center is in year-three of a process of providing treatment for over 100 individuals with HIV and co-occurring mental health disorders at various stages of recovery. The program's cross-site evaluation is planned as a five-year effort that includes all grantees and combines with SAMHSA's National Outcome Measures (NOMS) for site and program analysis.
