The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Center for Substance Abuse Prevention is accepting applications for FY 2019 Strategic Prevention Framework – Partnerships for Success grants. The purpose of this grant program is to prevent the onset and reduce the progression of substance addiction 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 addiction prevention priorities—underage drinking among people aged 9 to 20. At their discretion, recipients may also use grant funds to target up to two additional, data-driven substance addiction prevention priorities, such as the use of marijuana, cocaine, opioids, or methamphetamine by individuals ages 9 and above. Required performance measures to be collected on an annual basis include, but are not limited to, the number of community prevention activities conducted and the extent to which National Outcome Measures—including abstinence from substance use, employment, housing, and/or criminal justice status—have improved in the community.
Applications are due by Friday, March 29. Learn more and apply.
