Amount of Competitive Awards: Ceiling up to $190,000 per grant.

Period of Supplemental Funding: Project Period July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2016.

CFDA Number: 93.191.

Start Authority

Authority: Title VII, Sections 750 and 755(b)(1)(J) of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 294 and 42 U.S.C. 294e(b)(1)(J)).

End Authority

Justification: The FY 2015 Appropriations Bill included funds for the GPE Program specifically to address the psychological needs of military personnel, veterans, and their families in civilian and community-based settings, including those in rural areas. Current grants have existing structures and expertise in place that would require minimal start-up time for new grant implementation. For internship programs, there is only one opportunity to fill the slots as the Association of Postdoctoral Internship Centers' (APPIC) match for interns is in February. Internships begin in July/August, and if awards are made early enough, current grantees may be able to identify “unmatched students.”
