Proposals may focus on the prevention and/or reduction of opioid misuse and abuse per Congressional guidance for this program. Proposals may also focus on helping prevent spread of SARS-CoV-2 and in mitigating infection and transmission of SARS-CoV-2.
In FY 2020 and FY 2021, the program will continue to support the implementation of evidence-based, outcome-based educational approaches and programs delivered through an Extension model which promote protective factors and reduce the impact of risk factors leading to the prevention of initiation of substance use, delayed early use, and the progression from use to problematic use or to a substance use disorder. Applicants are encouraged to address intersecting factors that have the potential to prevent or reduce opioid and substance initiation, misuse, and abuse.
All projects and approaches must be research-informed. Proposed projects implementing programs and approaches with documented evidence of impact on preventing and/or reducing opioid/substance misuse and abuse will be given priority consideration. Programs and approaches currently developing an evidence base will also be considered.
