Strengthening Families to Prevent Substance Abuse

Two Health and Human Services agencies jointly will fund projects aimed at improving parenting and strengthening families as a way to prevent or reduce substance abuse and related emotional, social, and behavioral problems.

The Substance Abuse and Mental health Services Administration's Center for Substance and Prevention (CSAP) and the Center for Mental Health Services will fund between 20 and 30 cooperative agreements during fiscal year 2000 for 2-year efforts. Selected projects will receive approximately $80,000 to $100,000 for each year of the initiative.

Public or private non-profit or for-profit entities and State or local government agencies or institutions (such as universities or community-based organizations) were encouraged to apply. Applications were due June 13, 2000.
