The programmatic alignment of resources is vital to the successful implementation of a shared risk and protective factors framework. We should focus on building strategies that address risk and protective factors across the board, beyond the specific issue being funded. We are working with the SRPF community in Alaska to develop techniques, guidelines and language that can help create braided funding sources that align with the shared risk and protective factor framework.
