Receipt date: January 17, 2003

SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Prevention is accepting applications for Fiscal Year 2003 cooperative agreements to support three-year State Incentive Enhancement grants to enable States and Territories to build on the prevention infrastructure established through the State Incentive Grant (SIG) Program in order to address additional key prevention priorities.  They are intended to fulfill SAMHSA’s overall goal of increasing the capacity and effectiveness of States and communities as they respond to the critical problems related to substance abuse nationwide.  

In particular, the SIG Enhancement grants will allow SIG States to focus on three key SAMHSA priorities:

  1. further develop the States’ substance abuse prevention data infrastructure and capacity to collect and analyze outcome data and report on key performance measures;
  2. fill additional gaps in targeted community-based services related to specific substance abuse prevention/early intervention needs identified by the States and that respond to SAMHSA priorities; and
  3. support and promote evidence-based prevention programs in communities that have established working community coalitions and are targeting critical drug problems for specific populations.

Est. Funds for FY 2003: $8 million 
Est. No. of Awards:  10-12, ranging from $500,000 to $750,000
Project Period: 3 years
