Members of U-TuRN Team 1 will be the lead on a $320,267 grant a demonstration project on PROSPERing Step-by-step, State-by-state (P2S). This project will supplement the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach (ISUEO) Special Project supporting pilot work in Iowa. Specifically, their USDA-NIFA grant will support the evaluation of their Extension-Based Opioid Prevention Training and Capacity-Building System (P2S) through an innovative partnership among ISUEO, other collaborating agencies in IA, and Extension Stakeholders representing five PROSPER-involved states. It will facilitate scaling up the P2S Model, initiating groundwork among Extension-based stakeholders and prospective P2S trainees in other states, with the aim of enhancing their capacity to support a comprehensive community systems approach to address the opioid epidemic and achieve positive impacts for their youth and families.
