DHC Selected for state Prevention Grant

July 1, 2021- The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) Behavioral Health Services Commission has selected awardees to receive more than $534,000 in FY22 Kansas Prevention Collaborative-Community Initiative (KPCCI) grants. The goal of KPCCI is to reduce and prevent substance abuse in identified communities and enrich prevention efforts across the state through the implementation and sustainability of effective, culturally competent prevention strategies.

Grantees will create a comprehensive, community-based strategic plan that will result in community driven strategies to reduce underage drinking, youth marijuana use, shared risk and protective factors and produce sustainable systems change. Communities will utilize the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) model designed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to assess their local needs, build capacity and create a plan.

These funds are intended for the focus of primary prevention efforts directed at individuals not identified to be in need of treatment services.
