U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Strategic Prevention Framework – Partnerships for SuccessDeadline: July 6, 2018
The Strategic Prevention Framework – Partnerships for Success (SPF-PFS) grant program aims to address one of the nation’s top substance abuse prevention priorities; underage drinking among persons aged 9 to 20. States/tribes may also use grant funds to target up to two additional, data-driven substance abuse prevention priorities, such as the use of marijuana, cocaine, or methamphetamine, etc. by individuals ages 9 and above. SPF-PFS is designed to ensure that prevention strategies and messages reach the populations most impacted by substance abuse. The program extends current established cross-agency and community-level partnerships by connecting substance abuse prevention programming to departments of social services and their community service providers. This includes working with populations disproportionately impacted by the consequences of substance use; i.e., children entering the foster care system, transitional youth, and individuals that support persons with substance abuse issues (women, families, parents, caregivers, and young adults).
The SPF-PFS grant program is intended to prevent the onset and reduce the progression of substance abuse and its related problems while strengthening prevention capacity and infrastructure at the state, tribal, and community levels. Awards provide an opportunity for recipients to acquire additional resources to implement the SPF process at the state/tribal and community levels. The SPF-PFS grant program builds upon the experience and established SPF-based prevention infrastructure of states/tribes to address one of the nation’s top substance abuse prevention priorities; underage drinking among persons aged 9 to 20 in communities of high need.
Additionally, the SPF-PFS grant 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 $46,000,000 is available to make up to 34 awards that range from $500,000-$2,260,000. The length of the project is up to five years.
Eligibility: Federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes, tribal organizations, urban Indian organizations, or consortia of tribes or tribal organizations; and states/territories that are not currently receiving funds through SAMHSA’s SPF-PFS grant.
