The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) announces the availability of funds for Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grants (SPF SIGs).

SPF SIG grants are authorized under Section 516 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended. This announcement addresses Healthy People 2010 Focus Area 26, substance abuse.

The SPF SIG program is one of SAMHSA's infrastructure grant programs. SAMHSA's infrastructure grants support an array of activities to help grantees build a solid foundation for delivering and sustaining effective substance abuse and/or mental health services. The SPF SIGs, in particular, will provide funding to States and federally recognized Tribes and Tribal organizations to implement SAMHSA's Strategic Prevention Framework in order to:

  • prevent the onset and reduce the progression of substance abuse, including childhood and underage drinking,
  • reduce substance abuse-related pr oblems in communities, and
  • build prevention capacity and infrastructure at the State/Tribal and community levels.
The Strategic Prevention Framework is built on a community-based risk and protective factors approach to prevention and a series of guiding principles that can be operationalized at the Federal, State/Tribal and community levels. Although the direct recipients of SPF SIG funds will be States and federally recognized Tribes and Tribal organizations, SAMHSA envisions the SPF SIGs being implemented through partnerships between the States/Tribes and communities.

Eligibility

This program is intended to help States/Tribes enhance the prevention infrastructure and service delivery system throughout the State/Tribe. Applicants for the SPF SIG must have the ability to leverage and coordinate all prevention-related sources of funding and other resources in order to achieve the goals of the Strategic Prevention Framework. Therefore, eligibility for the SPF SIG is limited to the immediate office of the Governor in those States and Territories that currently receive the SAPT Block Grant (and did not receive an SPF SIG in FY 2004 or 2005) or to the Chief Executive Officer or highest ranking member of a federally recognized Tribe or Tribal organization. Governors are strongly encouraged to designate administration and oversight of the SPF SIG to the agency in the State that manages the 20 percent prevention set-aside of the SAPT Block Grant.

Award Information

It is expected that approximately $33 million will be available to fund approximately 12-15 SPF SIG awards in Fiscal Year (FY) 2006. Annual awards are expected to be up to $2.3 million per year in total costs (direct and indirect), depending on the size of the geographic area and population. Applicants may request a project period of up to five years.

Proposed budgets cannot exceed $2.3 million in any year of the proposed project. Annual continuation awards will depend on the availability of funds, grantee progress in meeting project goals and objectives, and timely submission of required data and reports.

Because the SPF SIG is intended to be implemented through a partnership between the State/Tribe and community-level organizations, and because much of the Strategic Prevention Framework involves activity that must be implemented at the community level, applicants at the State/Tribal level for the SPF SIG may retain up to 15 percent of the total grant award for activities to be implemented at the State/Tribal level. A minimum of 85 percent of the total grant award must be allocated to community-level organizations for activities to be implemented at the community level.

Cost sharing is not required.

Awards will be made as Cooperative Agreements
