Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 Funding Opportunity

AGENCY: Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, HHS.

[[Page 18361]]


ACTION: Notice of intent to award a single source grant to the state of 
Idaho for a Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice is to inform the public that the Substance Abuse 
and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) intends to award 
$1.5 million (total costs) for up to five years to the state of Idaho 
for a Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant. This is not 
a formal request for applications. Assistance will be provided only to 
the state of Idaho based on the receipt of a satisfactory application 
that is approved by an independent review group.
    Funding Opportunity Title: SP-13-005.
    Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 93.243.
    Authority: Section 516 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended 
.
    Justification: Eligibility for this SPF SIG award is limited to the 
state of Idaho, the only state receiving a Substance Abuse Prevention 
and Treatment Block Grant (SABG) that has never been awarded a SPF SIG 
grant from SAMHSA. The SPF SIG grant has already allowed 49 states to 
strengthen and consolidate their prevention systems and build greater 
capacity in their communities. SAMHSA/CSAP believes that every state 
must build prevention capacity and infrastructure to prevent the onset 
and reduce the progression of substance abuse, including childhood and 
underage drinking, and to reduce substance abuse-related problems 
across the nation. Following the SPF five-step process, the state of 
Idaho will have the opportunity to use SPF SIG funds to develop a 
comprehensive prevention plan at the state level and support a broad 
range of sub-recipient communities to implement effective programs, 
policies and practices to reduce substance abuse and its related 
problems. By giving a SPF SIG to every state, including Idaho, SAMHSA 
will have effected nationwide, systemic change in preventing the onset 
and reducing the progression of substance abuse and substance abuse-
related problems nationwide.
