Short Description
The Strategic Prevention Framework- Partnerships for Success (SPF-PFS) grant will support providers and their multi-sector coalitions in using the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) process to reduce past 30-day alcohol use rates and negative consequences of underage drinking among 8th to 12th graders.

The SPF is a five-step planning process to guide the selection, implementation, and evaluation of effective, culturally appropriate, and sustainable substance abuse prevention activities. The effectiveness of this process begins with a clear understanding of community needs and depends on the involvement of community members in all stages of the planning process. The SPF components are: assessment, capacity building, strategic planning, implementation, and evaluation. Cultural competency and sustainability are expected to be included in every component of the framework.

The SPF-PFS program will support providers and their multi-sector coalitions plan for and deliver services in communities that have higher rates of underage drinking compared to the state average. Providers and their coalitions will develop and implement local strategic plans to address underage drinking within their targeted community areas.

Providers will use a data-driven process to reduce underage drinking at the community level by 1) working with a local, multi-sector coalition and 2) planning for and developing a local strategic plan, 3) delivering evidence-based strategies, 4) working towards sustainability, and 5) participating in all aspects of the evaluation of the project.

The goals of the SPF-PFS project are as follows:

A. Decrease past 30 day alcohol use among 8th-12th grade youth and among identified vulnerable populations (where applicable).

B. Reduce one or more of the following consequences: number of underage alcohol-related crash fatalities, number of zero tolerance violations, or the number of alcohol-related emergency department visits.

C. Reduce one or more of the following outcomes: perception of parental disapproval/attitude of underage drinking (UAD), perception of peer disapproval/attitude of UAD, perceived risk or harm of use of UAD, and family communication about alcohol use.

D. Impact one or more contributing factors (also referred to as risk and protective factors) for underage drinking among 8th-12th grade youth:
• Perceived risk of harm associated with daily drinking and binge drinking
• Personal disapproval of youth alcohol use
• Perceived peer attitudes (norms) associated with youth alcohol use (e.g., how “cool” they would be perceived by peers if they used alcohol)
• Perceived parental disapproval of youth alcohol use
• Perceived community (adult) disapproval of underage drinking
• Parental communication regarding their disapproval of youth alcohol use
• Parental monitoring of alcohol-related behavior (likelihood their parents would catch them if they drank alcohol, attended a party where alcohol is served, etc.)
• Family rules about alcohol and drug use.
• Perceived ease of access to alcohol
• Access to different alcohol sources among past year alcohol users (e.g., retail, social or parent supply source)
