Grants ready for drug programs The Prevention in Action Program, a newly-funded program with the Mendocino County Public Health Division of Alcohol and Other Drug Programs, is preparing to release a Request For Applications. The purpose of this RFA is to notify groups about the funding available for effective, long-term, community-based prt^rams aimed at the prevention of alcohol and other drug use among youth. Background Funding for thi^program has been received through the support of The California Endowment, a private foundation located in Woodland Hills. The foundation, which was established in May 1996, has as its mission the improvement of access to affordable, quality health care for underserved individuals and the promotion of fundamental improvements in the health status of all Californians. The program is designed to provide seed money or "booster" funds to those community groups that have developed or are ready to implement successful strategies to provide health education and prevention services to youth through school-based, school-linked, or youth serving programs. A complementary technical assistance and resource search function is also underway to provide technical assistance to foster programs' long-term growth, facilitate their continued collaboration with schools and parents, and access continued funding through other sources. Application/funding information Applicants will compete for funding; not all applications received will be funded unless they meet or exceed the application criteria. Those eligible to apply include schools (both public and private), community groups, non-profit organizations, tribal entities, or government agencies. The mini-grants that are funded through this application process will begin in September, and conclude in April 1999, to roughly follow the school calendar. Contracts will be let for varying amounts, depending on the number of proposals approved for funding, and the amounts requested. Contracts will not exceed $5,000.
