Description

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2016 Strategic Prevention Framework - Partnerships for Success (SPF-PFS) grants.  The purpose of this grant program is to address two of the nation’s top substance abuse prevention priorities: 1) underage drinking among persons aged 12 to 20; and 2) prescription drug misuse among persons aged 12 to 25.  At their discretion, states/tribes may also use grant funds to target an additional, data-driven substance abuse prevention priority (marijuana, heroin, etc.) in their state/tribe.  The SPF-PFS grant program is intended to prevent the onset and reduce the progression of substance misuse and its related problems while strengthening prevention capacity and infrastructure at the state, tribal, and community levels.  

Eligibility

Eligibility is limited to states and tribal entities that have completed a SPF SIG grant and are not currently receiving funds through SAMHSA’s SPF-PFS grant.  SAMHSA is limiting eligibility to these entities because they have the greatest likelihood of achieving success through the SPF-PFS grant program.  Current SPF-PFS and SPF SIG grantees (with the exception of eligible SPF-PFS and SPF SIG grantees that are in a No Cost Extension) are excluded from applying for the SPF-PFS grant because they already have the resources in place to support the SPF infrastructure and address their areas of highest need, which can include underage drinking or prescription drug misuse.

Awards for the SPF-PFS grant program will be tiered and are based on a set of standard criteria that account for the following with respect to eligible states: a) prevalence rates of underage drinking among persons aged 12 to 20; b) prevalence rates of nonmedical use of pain relievers among persons aged 12 to 25; and c) average costs of delivering alcohol and other drug prevention and treatment services.  Tiered award amounts for eligible tribal entities are based on population size.
