Purpose

The purpose of this Request for Application (RFA) is to purchase alcohol, tobacco and other drug prevention services. “Prevention Services” is defined as a proactive process of helping individuals, families, and communities to develop the resources needed to develop and maintain healthy lifestyles.

Prevention is broad based in the sense that it is intended to alleviate a wide range of at-risk behaviors including, but not limited to, alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse, crime and delinquency, violence, vandalism, mental health problems, family conflict, parenting problems, stress and burnout, child abuse, learning problems, school failure, school drop outs, teenage pregnancy, depression and suicide.

Through this RFA process the PACT Coalition will be able to establish and maintain an ongoing effective and efficient statewide substance abuse prevention system.

Prevention services must address the SAPTA priorities for SFY 2015 – 2016 with possible continuation funding for SFY 16-17 &17-18 if funding is available), which include:

    • Reduce substance abuse related problems in communities.
