Prevention Technology Transfer Centers Cooperative Agreement

Funding Agency:
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration

NOTE: This is a Forecasted Opportunity.

The purpose of this program is to maintain and enhance the capacity of the PTTC Network to provide training and technical assistance services to the substance misuse prevention field including professionals/pre-professionals, organizations, and others in the prevention community that serve and support children, youth, young adults, families, parents, and other adults.

PTTCs will include a focus on advancing equity for underserved, under-reached populations, both in content development of prevention skills and modalities for the transfer of skills which may be significantly different for culturally diverse and historically under-reached populations. Recipients will be expected to work directly with SAMHSA and across the PTTC Network on activities aimed at improving implementation and delivery of effective substance misuse prevention interventions. The trainings and services will be based in prevention science, implementation science, use evidence-based and promising practices, and leverage the expertise and resources available through the alliances formed within and across the PTTC network.

With this program, SAMHSA aims to increase the competency level of the prevention workforce by increasing the number of certified prevention specialists and the number of people trained in substance misuse prevention science practices.
