Section I. Funding Opportunity DescriptionRx-Drugs

Implementation science is a growing field. An early area of emphasis for addiction health services researchers was to move beyond training of individual clinicians or service providers as a default implementation strategy, and develop interventions that would achieve broader, sustainable implementation at the organizational level. Some research has begun to look at intra-organizational implementation strategies to further accelerate the implementation of evidence-based practices (or de-implementation of unsupported or harmful practices). However, to date, a major remaining challenge is how to facilitate – in a systematic, scalable, sustainable way – the delivery of evidence-based prevention and treatment services at a system level.

This FOA seeks research projects that will move beyond a focus on how individual clinics or organizations implement a given change, and beyond implementation of interventions that target only a single evidence-based intervention (EBI). The purpose of this FOA is to identify efficacious and effective strategies or techniques for facilitating systems-level change within or across networks of organizations to promote broad use of evidence-based practices for the prevention and/or treatment of substance use disorders or HIV. This FOA seeks applications that can address implementation on a larger, system-level scale that is more analogous to the way policy changes lead to system-level changes in prevention and treatment service delivery. Achieving system-level improvements requires implementation strategies that are sufficiently flexible to address the variation in settings and context across a given system, but that are also generalizable across settings. The multi-site studies supported by this FOA should contribute both practical and conceptual advances.  In practical terms, these studies should provide strategies that can be used to effectively deploy guidelines, practices, and policies across entire systems of care.  In conceptual terms, these studies should also leverage the multi-site platform to test implementation science hypotheses, explore novel methodological approaches, or test new measures or models that can inform future implementation research in this or other health domains.

Drug-Free Communities Mentoring Program

Drug-Free Communities Mentoring Program
Department of Health and Human Services
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Admin

The Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program was created by the Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Act of 1997 (Public Law 105-20). DFC Mentoring grants were established as a component of the DFC Support Program when the program was reauthorized in 2001 (Public Law 107-82, 115 Stat. 814). The DFC Mentoring Program was also included in the Office of National Drug Control Policy Reauthorization Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-469).

The primary goal of the DFC Mentoring Program is to assist newly forming coalitions in becoming eligible to apply for DFC funding on their own.

It is the intent of the DFC Mentoring Program that, at the end of the Mentoring grant, each Mentee coalition will meet all of the Statutory Eligibility Requirements of the DFC Support Program and be fully prepared to compete for the DFC grant on their own. Grantees will be expected to achieve this goal by meeting the following objectives:

  1. Strengthen Mentee coalition’s organizational structure.
  2. Increase Mentee coalition’s leadership and community readiness to address youth substance use problems in the Mentee community.
  3. Assist the Mentee coalition in working through a strategic planning process that will result in a comprehensive Action Plan.
