SPF in Action
The SPF-PFS Project (2013‒2018)
- Supporting the development of a unified, comprehensive, and sustainable prevention system in the state of Hawai‘i.
- Utilizing the SPF to select and implement culturally appropriate evidence-based programs, policies, and practices to address high-risk communities and populations.
- Creating, revitalizing, and enhancing community mobilization and collaboration between federal, state, and community partners.
To achieve these goals, the HI-SPF-PFS has built upon the accomplishments achieved through the Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF-SIG) project in 2006–2012, which include the revitalization of the State Epidemiology Workgroup (SEOW) and Evidence-Based Workgroup. At the county-level, each of the four county coordination teams utilizes the SPF to identify areas of strengths and needs, and provides training and technical support to further enhance the capacity of the substance abuse prevention system in their respective county. At the community-level, five coalitions utilizes the SPF to address specific conditions of underage drinking in their communities through evidence-based environmental strategies. The following four county teams and five coalitions are the sub-recipients of the PFS grant.
