Virginia ABC Accepting Applications for Alcohol Abuse Prevention Grants

14 February 2018 News

In an effort to reduce underage and high-risk drinking, the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority (ABC) is now accepting grant applications for the agency’s 2018-2019 Alcohol Education and Prevention Grant program.

This is the fifth year ABC is offering grant funding to support the development of alcohol education and prevention programs across the commonwealth. Eleven Virginia community organizations, law enforcement departments, and universities received grants last year to fund marketing and media campaigns, overtime law enforcement patrols, mentoring programs, and other collaborative projects to help prevent alcohol misuse in their communities.

Virginia ABC asks that grant applicants present best-practice programs that have a long-lasting impact and encourage partnerships between organizations. Applicants must also address one or more of three focus areas: underage drinking prevention, social providing or social hosting prevention, and high-risk drinking prevention.

Grant requests are limited to a maximum of $10,000. Community coalitions, law enforcement, nonprofits, schools, colleges and universities, faith-based organizations and prevention-related groups are encouraged to apply. Applications are due by April 25th at 5 p.m. The first step in the application process is mandatory completion of the online training course “ABC EPS – Grant Application Training.” Online training instructions and the grant application are located on the ABC website.
