Apply for Anne Arundel Co. Underage Drinking Prevention Grants


Underage drinking remains a serious problem nationwide, and Anne Arundel County’s Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention and Education Services Program wants to put a stop to it locally.


Underage Drinking Preventions Grant


The program is seeking community organizations to apply for a Maryland Strategic Prevention Framework Community Implementation Grant. One group will be awarded approximately $60,000 in fiscal year 2012, $60,000 in FY2013, and $60,000 in FY2014, to lead the Northern Anne Arundel County Strategic Prevention Framework Coalition.

The purpose of the coalition is to assess community needs, build community capacity, create and maintain a strategic plan, implement environmental strategies, and evaluate coalition process and strategies. The funding must be used for the development and implementation of culturally competent, evidence-based environmental prevention strategies and programs specifically designed to reduce the prevalence of underage drinking, youth binge drinking, and alcohol-related crashes in the community at the local level.
