Regional Substance Abuse Prevention Coalitions Grant

The Colorado Department of Human Services, Office of Behavioral Health, Community Programs (OBH) administers a portion of the Federal Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant (SABG) from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to fund primary prevention by providing universal, selective, and indicated prevention activities and services for persons not identified as needing treatment. The San Luis Valley Prevention Network is coordinating a 5-year grant (November 2015 – June 2020) to strengthen and support local prevention coalition efforts and build a regional coalition support structure for coalition partners and the community around substance abuse prevention.
