The grants awarded include: Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) Grants – Partnerships for Success (PFS); Capacity Building Initiative for Substance Abuse and HIV Prevention Services for At-Risk Racial/Ethnic Minority Youth and Young Adults; and Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking Act (STOP Act grants).
