The Strategic Prevention Framework - Partnerships for Success program (Short Title: SPF-PFS) provides funding to expand and strengthen the capacity of local community prevention providers to implement evidence-based prevention programs.

With this funding, SAMHSA aims to strengthen community-level prevention capacity to identify and address local substance use prevention concerns, such as underage drinking, marijuana, tobacco, electronic cigarettes, opioids, methamphetamine, and heroin. Recipients will be expected to utilize local, state, and national substance use public health data to identify underserved communities and sub-populations of focus, identify prevention priorities, and develop and implement strategies to prevent the misuse of substances.
