Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is announcing the availability of funds for Cooperative Agreements (CA) establishing Suicide Mortality Review (SMR) processes and SMR committees (SMRC). Awards made for SMR-CA are anticipated to be funded by September 30, 2024. This is anticipated to be a one-year award with an optional one-year extension possible. This opportunity supports States, territories, and Tribal entities in establishing, coordinating, and managing SMRCs to identify and characterize suicide deaths and support the capacity to develop and implement data-informed strategies to prevent suicide, including suicide among veterans. These SMR-CAs aim to establish and increase the capacity of States, territories, and Tribes to collect high-quality uniform suicide death data, expand suicide death reviews, and ultimately translate data into suicide prevention actions at community, State, territorial, Tribal, and national levels. States, territories, and Tribes may identify key counties, cities, municipalities, or other political subdivisions in their own jurisdictions with whom they wish to coordinate for local SMRC development and implementation.
