SAMHSA is accepting SPF-PFS grant applications through March 29, 2019. The purpose of SPF-PFS is to prevent the onset and reduce the progression of substance abuse 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 abuse prevention priorities: underage drinking among persons aged 9 to 20. At their discretion, recipients may also use grant funds to target up to two additional, data-driven substance abuse prevention priorities, such as the use of marijuana, cocaine, opioids, methamphetamine, etc., by individuals ages 9 and above.
SAMHSA plans to issue 127 grants of up to $300,000 per year for up to five years. Eligibility is limited to tribes and tribal organizations, and domestic public or private nonprofit entities.
Eligibility is limited to 1) federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes, tribal organizations, Urban Indian Organizations, or consortia of tribes or tribal organizations and 2) domestic public or private non-profit entities. Recipients who have received funding under SP-16-003 and SP-18-008 are not eligible to apply for funding under this FOA.
