Substance Abuse Block Grant (SABG)

The Substance Abuse Block Grant (SABG) is awarded through the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) and administered by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). GOYFF  invests $5 million in Arizona organizations to implement substance use prevention and early intervention services to youth, adults, families, and communities. SABG dollars allow organizations to develop and implement evidence-based drug prevention programs, screening, and behavioral health and substance abuse assessments.

Funding is also allocated to the Trauma-Informed Substance Abuse Prevention Program (TISAPP), which aims to prevent substance abuse by supporting and expanding the use of trauma-informed care principles. The program uses culturally competent evidence-based programs and promising practices to increase protective factors, build resilience, and raise awareness of the impact of trauma. Organizations that receive funding develop programs to address the use and misuse of vaping, alcohol, wax pens, marijuana, polysubstance, or other community-identified drug trends.

If you have questions about this program or would like to be connected to grantees currently providing prevention and educational programming in your community, please email your name, contact information, location, and requested programming/training to Alfreda Moore, Program Administrator.
