Alaska (SPF-SIG) Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant

Grant: The Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Behavioral Health, seeks proposals from eligible applicants to provide Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant services for FY 2012. The Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG) is a federally funded grant program whose focus is to prevent substance use, abuse and dependency efforts at the state/tribal, regional and community level. SPF SIG grantees must be part of Community Coalitions and will provide a comprehensive array of promotion, prevention and early intervention strategies, which are data-focused, community-designed and driven using locally identified risk and protective factors; based on concepts and strategies that are proven to be effective in prevention of behavioral health concerns; and with clearly defined and measurable outcomes. For the purposes of this RFP, grantee’s prevention efforts will focus on both Alaska SPF SIG priority areas of 1) Youth alcohol use ages 12-20; and 2) Adult heavy and binge drinking ages 21-44.

Funder: Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration

Amount: The state grants are funded by a $10.7 million federal Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant program awarded in 2009. Some funding will go to building state infrastructure, such as trainers and prevention resources, and evaluation of grantee performance.

Eligibility: Community coalitions statewide
