The Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant Program (SABG) provides funding to all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the United States of America. The SAMHSA requires that grantees spend no less than 20% of their SABG allocation on primary substance abuse prevention strategies. These strategies are aimed at people who have not identified a need for treatment. State mental health authorities and individual state agencies can submit requests through the electronic application system, WebBGA.
