The pooling of multiple & smaller Title IV-A allocations into a single & larger allocation might allow the RSU to employ more effective prevention strategies.
(The RSU might now have enough Title IV-A funding to provide substance abuse counseling services or implement a model prevention program.)
SAUs that currently REAP Title IV-A funds to Title V to support prevention-related projects…but will not be eligible to REAPafter reorganization…should be collecting meaningful attitude/behavior change data during the final REAP year if they plan to request future funding of these projects under Title IV-A regulations.
A PowerPoint presentation that provides a complete overview of the Title IV-A program is available at: www.mainesdfsca.org
