Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grants (SPF SIG)-Republic of Palau The Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grants are used to advance community-based programs for substance abuse prevention, mental health promotion, and mental illness prevention. The SPF SIG implements a five-step process known to promote youth development, reduce risk-taking behaviors, build on assets, and prevent problem behaviors. The five steps are: (1) conduct needs assessments; (2) build state and local capacity; (3) develop a comprehensive strategic plan; (4) implement evidence-based prevention policies, programs and practices; and (5) monitor and evaluate program effectiveness, sustaining what has worked well. These grants will allow the programs to provide leadership, technical support and monitoring to ensure that participating communities are successful. The success of the grants will be measured by specific measurable outcomes, among them: abstinence from drug use and alcohol abuse, reduction in substance abuse-related crime, attainment of employment or enrollment in school, increased stability in family and living conditions, increased access to services, and increased social connectedness. Palau's Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant program will reach out to communities to enlist their support for the shared development of a strategic prevention framework based on sound prevention principles and Palauan culture and strengths. Palau plans to provide and facilitate training for targeted communities on strategic incentive grant principles, all steps of the Framework --including community readiness, data resources, evaluation, strategic planning, risk/protective factors, and model programs.
