Substance Abuse Mental Health Administration
Partnership for Success Grant (SPF-PFS) October 2019 through September 2024
In October, 2019, the Douglas County Health Youth Coalition was awarded a five year grant from the Substance Abuse Mental Health Administration. The purpose of the Strategic Prevention Framework – Partnership for Success grant is to address one of the nation’s top substance abuse prevention priorities; underage drinking among persons aged 9 to 20. The coalition will also use grant funds to target up to two additional, data-driven substance abuse prevention priorities, such as the use of marijuana, cocaine, or methamphetamine, etc. by individuals ages 9 and above.
Successful implementation requires the community/coalition to work through the underlying factors that influence the problem(s) the intend to address. For this reason, the DCHYC intends to identify the priority risk and protective factors that will most likely to influence our priority problem(s).
