ESD’s PREVENT! Coalition receives grant to address youth substance abuse



Educational Service District 112’s PREVENT! Coalition received a Drug Free Communities Support Program Continuation Grant from the Office of National Drug Control Policy.

PREVENT! Coalition, the Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition of Clark County, will receive $125,000 per year for five years to continue addressing substance abuse among Clark County youth.

The grant is a continuation of a five-year grant that ended this month. PREVENT! also received a continuation of the Drug Free Communities Mentoring grant, an additional $75,000 over the next year to mentor two other coalitions, Prevent Together: Battle Ground Prevention Alliance and the Skamania Community Mobilization Against Substance Abuse.

Combined with the required match and in-kind donations, the grant will bring more than $1.5 million into Clark County over the next five years.
