Hi. Our internship program has a comprehensive substance abuse clinic in our academic med center setting but the rural placement is a primary care setting that has some substance abuse training. Is this workable, or does all of the SUD training have to be in the rural setting?
Timothy Kearney
43:03
We are a CHC with APA accredited internship and post doc programs. We are in year 3 of a GPE grant focused on developing the doctoral student (practicum) level of training. Can we apply to continue training at the doctoral student level (earlier in the training trajectory than internship or post doc) to further develop our professional development pipeline or would we need to apply GPE funds to focus on one of our two accredited programs?
Steve Lawyer
44:30
We currently have a GPE grant and are applying for a new one. Can Fellows from the first grant be funded again on a subsequent grant?
Jeremiah Schumm
45:39
Does a placement site need to be physically located in an area that meets the NFO criterion for a high need/rural county? Or does a placement site qualify if it provides services to clients (in person or telehealth) to surrounding high/rural county?
Holly Lister
48:53
Is the award 450k per year for 3 years, or 450k for the total 3-year period?
Adrian Billings
54:13
We are currently funded and participating in a HRSA-21-089 BHWET for Professionals Grant for support of Masters degree seeking LPC students. May we also apply for this GPE grant to run concurrent with the BHWET grant?
Erin Folstad
56:25
If our programs do NOT have a focus on Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) and other Substance Use Disorders (SUD), will they be competitive or is this training/focus needed?

Question from Amanda Parsons- Can students receive a BHWET and GPE stipend or just one or the other?No, stipend supplementation may only be provided by non-federal sources of funds. Concurrent Benefits: A traineeship/fellowship or other training program (e.g.; residency) under a HRSA funded training Award may not be held concurrently with another federally sponsored fellowship or similar Federal award that provides a stipend or otherwise duplicates provisions of the training/fellowship award.
Margaret Smith
01:01:06
If the stipend is 25000 for doctoral students and they are doing a part time practicum, it could be 2 years, but it's a 3 year grant, so what would occur for the third year of practicum students if it was extended for the 24 months in the third year of the grant cycle?

01:01:54
Question from Holly Lister- If the institution has an APA-accredited internship program, but would like to focus on developing a postdoctoral program for this grant, is the institution also required to be an APA-accredited postdoc program?A2. Per page 25 of the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), applicant organization must provide: (1) a statement that it holds APA or PCSAS accreditation, including the type of program accredited, whether the program is accredited on contingency status, and whether the program is on probation; (2) a web link to the accreditation status; and (3) the accreditation start and expiration dates.
Adam Dickey
01:02:45
to clarify - to qualify for this grant one must already be APA accredited internship and or a Doctoral Program?

Question from Edward Hunter- Our internship program has a comprehensive substance abuse clinic in our academic med center setting but the rural placement is a primary care setting that has some substance abuse training. Is this workable, or does all of the SUD training have to be in the rural setting?A3. Per the NOFO on page 9 applicants must ensure at least twenty-five (25) percent of the time in the experiential training site(s) is in the delivery of OUD and other SUD prevention, treatment, and recovery services.
Holly Lister

To clarify your response to someone's question "Concurrent Benefits: A traineeship/fellowship or other training program (e.g.; residency) under a HRSA funded training Award may not be held concurrently with another federally sponsored fellowship or similar Federal award that provides a stipend or otherwise duplicates provisions of the training/fellowship award." - We cannot apply for this one if we have another funded HRSA training grant? (We have the HRSA ISTP grant).

Question from Timothy Kearney- We are a CHC with APA accredited internship and post doc programs. We are in year 3 of a GPE grant focused on developing the doctoral student (practicum) level of training. Can we apply to continue training at the doctoral student level (earlier in the training trajectory than internship or post doc) to further develop our professional development pipeline or would we need to apply GPE funds to focus on one of our two accredited programs?Answer- per page 6 of the NOFO, Current GPE award recipients whose grants are scheduled to end on August 31, 2022 are eligible to apply for this funding opportunity and should apply as “Competing Continuations.” All other applicants should apply as “New.” If funded, for-profit organizations are prohibited from earning profit from the federal award (45 CFR part 75.216(b)).

If our experiential partner qualifies based on being Located in a Mental Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSAs) - how can we tell that from the Search Tool results? Will they just be identified as "Mental Health HPSA - YES"? Would there be anything in the results that would alert us that in spite of being identified as being in a Mental Health HPSA they do not qualify for this area.
MGerdine
01:12:58
Question from Adam Dickey- to clarify - to qualify for this grant one must already be APA accredited internship and or a Doctoral Program?Answer- Per page 25 of the NOFO, applicant organization must provide in attachment 6: (1) a statement that it holds APA or PCSAS accreditation, including the type of program accredited, whether the program is accredited on contingency status, and whether the program is on probation; (2) a web link to the accreditation status; and (3) the accreditation start and expiration dates.
Edward Hunter
01:13:52
What portion of the training needs to take place in the underserved areas? Our program is at an academic medical center where we do some of the training, but we are also placing the interns in the rural settings for part of the time.
Jennifer Callahan
01:14:54
If applying for a competing continuation, can we add a new experiential training site beyond what we had in our original (currently funded) plan?
Edward Hunter
01:16:19
Also, given that for internships the awards will not be announced until after the Match for 2022-23 academic year (AY), can we create a proposal where we would carry over funds for the first cohort to begin in the 2023-24 AY?
MGerdine
01:18:56
Question from Steve Lawyer. We currently have a GPE grant and are applying for a new one. Can Fellows from the first grant be funded again on a subsequent grant? Answer: Generally no, the program only allows a participant to receive a stipend for up to 12 month, or 24 for part time. Receiving a second stipend for another 12 months does not meet the program requirements. The goal and purpose of the program is to increase expand the number of trained doctoral health service psychology students, interns, and post-doctoral residents providing quality interdisciplinary, integrated behavioral health for placement into community-based primary care settings. However, if there is information we are missing, Please reach out to us in an email to discuss.

For SUD and OUD training, is it expected that every training location has 20% SUD/OUD training or is it 20% of all training that is required to be SUD/OUD?
MGerdine
01:27:26
Question Jeremiah Schumm: Does a placement site need to be physically located in an area that meets the NOFO criterion for a high need/rural county? Or does a placement site qualify if it provides services to clients (in person or telehealth) to surrounding high/rural county?Answer: Applicants must list at least one (1) training site located in one of the following high need and high demand areas.
Betsy Kennard
01:28:26
If the location is located in an urban area but the site is rural, is the travel of the trainee covered
MGerdine
01:28:34
Question Adrian Billings: We are currently funded and participating in a HRSA-21-089 BHWET for Professionals Grant for support of Masters degree seeking LPC students.

Is there somewhere we can find a list of what qualifies as a health discipline to ensure our partners fulfill the required 2 or more health disciplines other than psychology (pg 9 or NOFO)
Jennifer Callahan
01:38:26
I think this was missed: If applying for a competing continuation, can we add a new experiential training site beyond what we had in our original (currently funded) plan?
Holly Lister
01:39:22
Thank you Fran for clarifying - so that means if the same trainees aren't being supported by the stipend, we are eligible? (Regarding the concurrent benefits)

Can you provide more nfo on the student commitment letters? Do you have a template ?
Brian Cox
01:44:56

01:49:05
Would juvenile justice or jail settings qualify?
Kim Goff
01:52:06
Our student numbers are relatively modest but we have the only APA-accredited graduate program in our rural state. Will the small number of students count against us in the evaluation if we can meet other criteria?
Kimberly Smith
01:54:56
Thanks so much!
Margaret Smith
01:54:57
Thank you all!
