Serving California's
Prevention Community

The Community Prevention Initiative (CPI) provides no-cost technical assistance and training in substance abuse prevention. CPI is administered by the Center for Applied Research Solutions and funded and directed by the California Department of Health Care Services.

The TTA project is intended to serve California agencies and organizations involved in community-based prevention. CPI is able to provide no-cost TTA support for planning and prevention services that include a broad community perspective. Specifically, the purpose of Community Prevention Initiative, is "to reduce and manage community-level risks and problems directly attributable to and/or collaterally resulting from ATOD availability, manufacture, distribution, promotion, sale and/or use."

The CARS CPI TA team works in coordination with the DHCS team and with a pool of expert consultants to provide services.
