$60,000 available for grant programs
The Anne Arundel County Executive's office has announced the availability of 1993 grant money for community-based drug and alcohol prevention programs.
Non-profit community organizations are eligible to apply for these funds from the Anne Arundel County Department of Health's Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program (DAAPP).
DAAPP is accepting applications for the Mini-Grant Program and the County Executive's Drug and Alcohol Summit Grant Program.
Under the Mini-Grant program, approximately $60,000 will be available to develop on-going alcohol and drug abuse prevention programs.
Applications will be reviewed by a panel of county government and community members. The proposals will be ranked and grants awarded to the top applicants until all grant funds are expended.
Funding for the Executive's Drug and Alcohol Abuse Summit Grant Program will be decided in November by participants of the Drug and Alcohol Abuse Summit. The top five applicants for this grant will be given an opportunity to present their plans and ideas to the November gathering.
Organizations can apply for either of the grants but not for both.
DAAPP will offer a seminar to answer questions and provide assistance for the application process at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Aug. 31. Attendance is not mandatory in order to apply for a grant.
The deadline for receipt of grant applications is Sept. 24.
Applications must be delivered to the Anne Arundel County Department of Health's, Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program office at 33 Parole Plaza, Suite 203, Annapolis, 21041.
