Grants to USA and territories local and state governments, CBOs, private institutions, and tribes for services to prevent Veteran suicide. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to applying. Funding is intended to provide Veterans who are at risk for suicide with suicide prevention services.

Funding offered under this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) responds to the mounting need to reach Veterans at risk for suicide in their communities. The SSG Fox SPGP aims to build upon VA's public health approach, which combines clinical and community-based interventions to prevent Veteran suicide for those inside and outside of VA health care.

Suicide prevention services include any of the following services provided to address the needs of a participant: (1) Outreach; (2) baseline mental health screening; (3) education; (4) clinical services for emergency treatment; (5) case management services; (6) peer support services; (7) assistance in obtaining VA benefits; (8) assistance in obtaining and coordinating other public benefits and assistance with emergent needs; (9) nontraditional and innovative approaches and treatment practices; and (10) other services.

Suicide prevention services are those services that address the needs of eligible individuals and their families and are necessary for improving the mental health status and well-being and reducing the suicide risk of eligible individuals and their families. Applicants must include in their application how they will provide or coordinate the provision of the baseline mental health screening to all participants. In addition, the application must include the proposed suicide prevention services to be provided or coordinated to be provided and the identified need for those services. For information about what suicide prevention services include, see the "Approach" section in the Federal Register:
