The statewide collaboration for implementing the project includes partnering with community based treatment providers and advisory groups. The Focus project is a three year grant awarded to the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) and funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) through the State Adolescent Treatment, Enhancement, and Dissemination (SAT-ED) project in October 2012. The Consortium conducts the process and outcome evaluation.
