PPC Meeting Dates
Our funding
The Panhandle Prevention Coalition is supported in whole or part, by federal or state funds received from Region 1 Behavioral Health Authority, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Division of Behavioral Health and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), including Grant #93.243 under the Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships for Success Grant.  The PPC is also supported by the Tobacco Free Nebraska Program as a result of the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement.

2017 PPC goals:

  1. Continue grassroots policy work to address underage drinking, binge drinking, drinking and driving, tobacco use, and prescription drug abuse.
  2. Strengthen K-12 & post-secondary school policies.
  3. Strengthen enforcement of alcohol laws.

The Panhandle Prevention Coalition uses a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)-wide planning model for prevention called a strategic prevention framework. The framework emphasizes sustainability and cultural competency and consists of five basic steps:

  • Needs assessment
  • Capacity building
  • Strategic planning
  • Implementation of evidence-based programs, policies, and practices
  • Evaluation and monitoring

Tobacco Free Nebraska uses the Communities of Excellence in Tobacco Control Community Indicators to guide their work plans.  The priority areas include:
  • Eliminating Exposure to Secondhand Smoke
  • Prevent Youth Initiation
  • Reaching Underserved Populations
  • Helping People Quit
