The grant is intended to improve the capacity of a current coalition or group looking to implement prevention. Substance use/misuse prevention is defined as preventing the onset of alcohol and other drug (AoD) use, misuse, and substance use disorders. AoD prevention is a planned sequence of activities that, through the practice and application of evidence-based prevention principles, policies, strategies, and programs, is intended to inform, educate, develop skills, reduce risk behaviors, affect environmental factors, and/or provide referrals to other services.
This grant is not intended to merely fund programs that do not move the capacity of a coalition or prevention-intended group. The movement toward positive community change focused on substance use/misuse prevention in a particular community must be demonstrated.
Applicants will choose whether they will be using the funds for prevention coalition development focused on either 1) mobilizing; 2) planning; or 3) implementation.
