New SAMHSA Grant due April 12!-Strategic Prevention Framework – Partnerships for Success (SPF-PFS)

9 02 2016

Application Due Date: Tuesday, April 12, 2016

 

Anticipated Award Amount: From $318,543 to $1,230,000 per year

 

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.
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.

Workshop on Strategic Planning for Environmental Sustainability

16 09 2015

Thanks to the Tribal Solid Waste Advisory Network (TSWAN) for the opportunity to present a hands-on workshop in Omak, WA next Tuesday at the 12 Tribes Resort Casino, a new Colville Confederated Tribes facility.  During the workshop we’ll work with representatives of the 29-member Tribes helping them complete an action plan leading to a strategic plan for the environmental sustainability of their respective reservations.  In a previous workshop we shared tools and templates for the planning process that include securing Tribal government buy-in for the activities and results as an early step. We’re looking forward to meeting old friends and making new ones during the day-long program.
