Programs that do not meet all four minimum review requirements or are within an automatic exclusion area will not be considered by SAMHSA and will be declined for NREPP review. In addition, some programs that meet the minimum requirements and are considered by SAMHSA may be declined for review, depending on SAMHSA's areas of interest and funding resources.
Program developers with interventions that are not accepted for review will receive a notification from NREPP staff that explains the reason for the decision. NREPP staff members also are available, upon request, to answer any questions after the submission period ends so that program developers have the feedback they need to improve their packet for possible resubmission at a later date.
However, NREPP staff cannot provide detailed technical assistance for improving individual submission packet components, and program developers interested in resubmission must prepare and submit a new packet during a future submission period.
