Purpose

The Strategic Prevention Framework for Prescription Drugs (SPF Rx) grant program provides funds for state agencies that have already completed a Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant to target prescription drug misuse. Required activities include:

  • Raising awareness about the dangers of sharing medications, and work with pharmaceutical and medical communities on the risks of overprescribing to young adults
  • Raising community awareness by bringing prescription drug abuse prevention activities and education to schools, communities, parents, prescribers, and their patients

Through this opportunity, SAMHSA will also track reductions in opioid overdoses and the incorporation of Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) data into needs assessments and strategic plans as indicators of the program's success. State applicants must have a fully operational PDMP in order to apply for the SPF Rx program. Tribes must coordinate with the state run PDMPs to identify opportunities for collaboration that will limit overprescribing in tribal communities.

Eligibility

Eligibility is limited to states, U.S. territories, pacific jurisdictions, and tribal entities that have completed a Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant. Applicants also are required to have an operational state run Prescription Drug Monitoring Program.
