U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Strategic Prevention Framework – Partnerships for Success
Strategic Prevention Framework – Partnerships for Success grants will fund projects intended to prevent the onset and reduce the progression of substance abuse and its related problems while strengthening prevention capacity and infrastructure at the community level. The program is intended to address one of the nation’s top substance abuse prevention priorities – underage drinking among persons aged 9 to 20. At their discretion, recipients may also use grant funds to target up to two additional, data-driven substance abuse prevention priorities, such as the use of marijuana, cocaine, opioids, methamphetamine, etc. by individuals age 9 and above.
The grant program focuses on community-driven efforts to advance substance abuse prevention. By working collaboratively, communities of high need can more effectively begin to overcome the challenges underlying their substance abuse prevention priorities. Additionally, the program seeks to address behavioral health disparities among racial and ethnic minorities and other populations by encouraging the implementation of strategies to decrease the differences in access, service use, and outcomes among the populations served.
Amount: A total of $38,000,000 is available to make approximately 127 awards up to $300,000 per year for a project period of up to five years.
Eligibility: Federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native tribes, tribal organizations, Urban Indian Organizations, or consortia of tribes or tribal organizations; and domestic public or private non-profit entities.
