Justification: Only the Iowa Department of Public Health is eligible to apply. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP), is seeking to award a single source supplemental grant to the Iowa Department of Public Health to support methamphetamine prevention infrastructure development to reduce methamphetamine production supply and use.
Iowa has a serious and growing methamphetamine abuse problem. It ranks as the sixth highest state in usage, according to the 2001 preliminary findings of the National Institute of Justice. Problems stemming from widespread use, including increases in treatment admissions, arrests, drug convictions, and seizure of methamphetamine laboratories, have overwhelmed the substance abuse prevention and treatment, and criminal justice systems. Iowa's rural and agricultural nature provides an attractive setting for clandestine methamphetamine production Start Printed Page 16593laboratories, since it is characterized by open space, a network of roadways for delivery, and ample raw materials. Consequently, Iowa houses many methamphetamine laboratories.
The dramatic increase in methamphetamine use in the State of Iowa has stimulated the interest and commitment of its business community to partner with the State in responding to the problem. There is a growing awareness in the field of the importance of engaging “mainstream” sectors of the community in prevention activities in order to increase the acceptability, effectiveness, and long-term sustainability of such programs. The interest of Iowa's business community provides the State (and SAMHSA) with a unique opportunity to develop and evaluate a public-private partnership to combat methamphetamine production and cost.Start Further Info
