The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is accepting applications for fiscal year 2015 Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships for Success State and Tribal Initiative grants (SPF-PFS grants). The program is designed 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 and abuse among persons aged 12 to 25. The SPF-PFS program is also intended to bring SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) to a national scale.
SAMHSA expects up to 38 grantees will be awarded between 300,000 and $2.4 million per year for up to five years. The actual award amount may vary, depending on the availability of funds.
WHO CAN APPLY: Eligible applicants are states (including 2 U.S. Territories and 1 Pacific Jurisdiction) and tribal entities that completed a Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF-SIG) and are not currently receiving funds through SAMHSA’s SPF-PFS grants. See Section III-1 of the Request for Applications (RFA) for complete eligibility information.
