KDADS Community Prevention Grant Request for Applications

The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS), Behavioral Health Services Commission, announces the release of a Request for Applications (RFA) for planning grants (Cohort II) that will allow eligible applicants to engage in comprehensive community-based strategic planning that will result in community driven plans to reduce underage drinking and youth marijuana use, shared risk and protective factors and produce sustainable systems change.

The Kansas Prevention Collaborative-Community Initiative (KPCCI) is intended 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. Through the advancement of technological supports, learning processes, technical assistance, direct consultation, and other resources, grantees will be supported through each of the five steps of the SPF.
