What is CAST?SCs chosen name for its Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG)Five year projectWorth over $10 million to the stateSC is a cohort IV stateSC is an early leader in cohort IV!3SCs chosen name for its project to implement the SAMHSA Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG)Five year projectWorth over $10 million to the state, pending annual awards from SAMHSAs Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP)

3What is the SPF SIG?one of SAMHSA's infrastructure grant programs

help grantees build a solid foundation

cooperative agreement = significant government involvement

4The Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG) program is one of SAMHSA's infrastructure grant programs

SAMHSA's infrastructure grants support an array of activities to help grantees build a solid foundation for delivering and sustaining effective substance abuse and/or mental health services

It is a cooperative agreement, which requires significant government involvement

4Purpose of the SPF SIGprevent the onset and reduce the progression of substance abuse, including childhood and underage drinking

reduce substance abuse-related problems in communities

build prevention capacity and infrastructure at the State/Tribal and community levels5The SPF SIGs will provide funding to States and federally recognized Tribes and Tribal organizations to implement SAMHSA's Strategic Prevention Framework in order to:

prevent the onset and reduce the progression of substance abuse, including childhood and underage drinking

reduce substance abuse-related problems in communities

build prevention capacity and infrastructure at the State/Tribal and community levels

5Purpose of the SPF SIGexpand an existing or build a new Substance Abuse Prevention infrastructure that can be sustained

Prevention SAMHSA will not support Substance Abuse Treatment or Mental Health services with these funds

6The funds are intended to expand an existing or build a new Substance Abuse Prevention infrastructure that can be sustained long after the cooperative agreement has ended

The SPF SIG is a Prevention Infrastructure and Services Cooperative Agreement and SAMHSA will not support Substance Abuse Treatment or Mental Health services with these funds

6SPF SIG Cohorts I - IVCohort I 21 granteesCohort II 5 granteesCohort III 16 grantees (5 tribes)Cohort IV 25 grantees (7 tribes)

Total States/Territories = 55 granteesTotal Tribes = 12 grantees

8Core Principles of the SPF SIGUse of the SPFData-driven outcomes-based preventionCommunity level efforts funded by the SPF SIG must include all five steps of the SPFAt least 85% of the total grant award must go toward local level effortsGrantees are required to implement evidence-based programs, practices and policies99The SPF SIG focuses on a systematic process, also known as the Strategic Prevention Framework, which is a five-step planning process that focuses on data-driven decision-making and community-level change.The SPF SIG requires the use of data-driven outcomes based prevention.Under the SPF SIG, 85% of funds must be directly allocated to sub-recipient communities. Sub-recipient communities must use these funds to go through all 5 steps of the SPF process these funds are not meant for program implementation alone.The SPF SIG requires sub-recipients to implement evidence-based prevention, meaning that the programs, policies and practices they implement must either appear on a Federal evidence-based list, appear in a peer-reviewed journal with proven evidence of effectiveness, or have other documentation showing effectiveness CSAP has developed a guidance document to help States assess whether proposed activities meet this last definition of evidence-based.Finally, under the SPF SIG, community is the unit of analysis. This means, for example, that if your State defines community as the county, your evaluation will measure changes in substance use consumption and consequence indicators at the county level (rather than, for example, at the program level).Core Principles of the SPF SIG (Contd)In SC, the County is the local unit of interest and analysisThe SPF SIG is built on a community-based approach to prevention and a series of implementation principles that can be operationalized at the State and Local LevelsPublic Health Approach

5 step processWork happening in steps simultaneouslyCultural competence and sustainability integralSPF model is a system of changeStep 1: AssessmentProfile population needs, resources, and readiness to address the problems and gaps in service delivery Major task involves review archival epidemiological data and collection new data to accurately assess the magnitude of substance abuse issuesStep 2: CapacityMobilize and/or build capacity to address needsAssemble people and other resourcesBuild/strengthen coalitionsSeek needed training opportunities Step 3: PlanningDevelop a Comprehensive Strategic PlanIncludes overview of needs assessment findingsLogic model also includedDetails which, and how strategies will be implemented in communities to produce desired outcomesStep 4: Implementation Implement evidence-based prevention strategies and infrastructure development activitiesStep 5: Evaluation Monitor process, evaluate effectiveness, sustain effective programs/activities, and improve or replace those that fail Cultural Competence is a set of congruent behaviors, attitudes, policies, knowledge and skills that come together in a system, agency, or among professionals that enable them to work effectively in multi-cultural situations

Cultural Competence is the understanding and appreciation of cultural differences and similarities within and between groups

Cultural Competence is a willingness and ability to draw on community-based values, traditions and customs, and to work with knowledgeable persons of and from the community in developing prevention strategies

The likelihood of a program to continue over time, especially after initial grant funding decreases or disappears

16Work with Regional Capacity Coaches (RCCs) to ensure they have access to TA, training, and support to provide optimal assistance to their counties

Coordinate training opportunities in conjunction with RCCs

Support RCCs in various capacities as needed

Create support materials and documents that support successful assessment, planning, and implementation of the SPF in counties

Attend necessary trainings and meetings to provide optimal support to RCCs and counties
