Prevention Partnership Grants (PPG)
NOTICE: Since the Department does not anticipate sponsoring the annual Prevention System Meeting in 2013, Prevention Partnership grantees may substitute the Community Health and Wellness Conference sponsored by the Florida Alcohol and Drug Abuse Association.
Beginning in 2001, the Florida legislature (Florida Statute 397.99) made the decision to designate funds from the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant (SAPTBG) to substance abuse prevention for a multi-agency collaborative effort.
Every three years, the Department of Children and Families (DCF), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Program Office conducts a competitive grant process for the school substance abuse Prevention Partnership Grant (PPG), in cooperation with the Department of Education (DOE) and the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ).
Prevention funds are competitively awarded for evidence-based programs, practices or strategies.
Funding cycle 2012-2015 criteria focused on the development of effective evidence-based substance abuse prevention and early intervention strategies for school or college-age populations. During the 2012 competitive process, grant criteria included: underage drinking, which includes college students 18-20 years of age, youth marijuana use and prescription drug misuse.
