Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Adminis.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2013 Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking Act (STOP Act) grants. The purpose of this program is to prevent and reduce alcohol use among youth ages 12-20 in communities throughout the United States.
The STOP Act language states that the purposes of the Act are to "prevent and reduce alcohol use among youth in communities throughout the United States; strengthen collaboration among communities, the federal government, state, local and tribal governments; enhance intergovernmental cooperation and coordination on the issue of alcohol use among youth; serve as a catalyst for increased citizen participation and greater collaboration among all sectors and organizations of a community that first demonstrates a long-term commitment to reducing alcohol use among youth; disseminate to communities timely information regarding state-of-the-art practices and initiatives that have proven to be effective in preventing and reducing alcohol use among youth; and enhance, not supplant, effective local community initiatives for preventing and reducing alcohol use among youth."Â See Appendix G of this RFA for further background information.
The STOP Act program aligns with SAMHSA's Strategic Initiative 1: Prevention of Substance Abuse and Mental Illness, Goal 1.2: Prevent or reduce consequences of underage drinking and adult problem drinking; Objective 1.2.1: Establish the prevention of underage drinking as a priority issue for states, territories, tribal entities, universities, and communities; 220.127.116.11: Through the Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking Act (STOP Act) program, enhance intergovernmental cooperation and coordination on the issue of alcohol use among youth and provide communities timely information regarding state-of-the-art practices that have proven to be effective. Consistent with addressing behavioral health disparities, STOP Act grantees should utilize their data to identify and address any appropriate subpopulations of youth (i.e. , racial, ethnic, sexual/gender minority groups) that are vulnerable to disparities and (2) should implement strategies to decrease the differences in programmatic access, service use, and outcomes among such subpopulations.
STOP Act grants are authorized under 42 U.S.C. 290bb-25b; Section 519B of the Public Health Service Act, as amended. This announcement addresses Healthy People 2020 Substance Abuse Topic Area HP 2020-SA
