Grants for Substance Abuse Prevention Programs Now Available

The Office of Drug Policy will award approximately $1.6 million in grants to fund substance abuse primary prevention programs across the state for FY2018.

The funding is available through the Substance Abuse Block Grant (SABG), and is intended to provide substance abuse prevention services directly to youth, families and other at-risk individuals, and/or community coalitions seeking funding to employ environmental strategies designed to reduce the impact of substance abuse at the community level.

Eligible applicants include any governmental entity (including tribal entities), such as counties, cities, schools and school districts, local law enforcement agencies, other public entities and non-profit private entities such as community-based organizations.

Those considering applying for funding are encouraged to participate in one of the two pre-application webinars offered.  To register for a webinar, please visit:
