The purpose of the sub-award program is to provide funding to tribes and non-profit tribal organizations for efforts related to prescription drug misuse prevention.  These include promoting emotional health and wellness, raising awareness of the risk/harm/consequences related to non-medical use of prescription drugs (NMUPD) and reducing the onset of non-medical use of prescription drugs in Native communities.

The SPF Rx sub-award program is tasked with bringing prevention and education activities related to prescription drug misuse to tribal organizations, schools, communities, parents and caretakers, and prescribers/patients.

SPF Rx sub-award funding is intended to augment current projects or implement new projects that address prevention of prescription-drug misuse in youth age 12-25. Another goal is to raise awareness of the risks and harms of sharing prescription medications and bring prevention activities and education to schools, Tribal communities, and families.
