This study evaluated the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) State Incentive Grant (SIG) Program. These grants funded States, Territories and Tribes to implement the Framework for preventing the onset and reducing the progression of substance abuse, including childhood and underage drinking; reducing problems related to substance abuse-in communities; and building prevention capacity and infrastructure at the State/Tribal/Territory, and community levels. Since 2004, 77 grantees have been funded. Thirty six states have completed their grants. A cross-site evaluation of the first two cohorts was performed with the close collaboration of Federal and contract evaluators.
Positive findings for reducing child and underage drinking were reported for youth alcohol use, binge drinking, and driving after drinking; young adult binge drinking; and alcohol-related motor vehicle fatalities,
