The Minority AIDS Initiative: Service Integration program (Short Title: MAI-SI) provides grants to integrate evidence-based, culturally competent mental and substance use disorder treatment with HIV primary care and prevention services. The population of focus is individuals with a serious mental illness or co-occurring disorder living with or at risk for HIV and/or hepatitis in at-risk populations, including racial and ethnic minority communities.

Required activities include:

  1. HIV and hepatitis prevention services within a behavioral healthcare setting
  2. Evidence-based mental and substance use disorder treatment and practices that are trauma-informed and recovery-oriented
  3. Peer support services
  4. Outreach to inform individuals of available behavioral health services, and HIV and hepatitis primary care and prevention services
  5. Case management services to coordinate all aspects of care, including behavioral health, primary care, HIV and hepatitis treatment, housing, benefits, employment, and other supportive services

SAMHSA intents to make an equitable distribution of awards in terms of geography including urban, rural, and remote settings and balance among populations of focus and program size.
