WASHBURN COUNTY -- On behalf of the Washburn County Board of Supervisors, the Community Alliance for Prevention (CAP) of Washburn County is now accepting applications for 2019 Alcohol and Drug Prevention grants (up to $1000 per proposal).  $7500 has been allotted for Alcohol and Drug Prevention efforts that must benefit Washburn County residents.

Examples of alcohol and drug prevention activities/programs include but are not limited to: alcohol/drug-free post-prom parties, guest speakers, town hall meetings and summer community programs. Prevention efforts should educate the community on the current trends in alcohol and drug prevention efforts, current statistics, and/or what can be done to lower the amount of alcohol, drugs, and nicotine use by youth in our area.

Each activity is required to convey a message of alcohol and drug prevention during the proposed activity/program.   Anyone or organization can apply and CAP encourages new groups to apply.  Completed applications must be received by February 28, 2019 and award notices will be by April 1, 2019. 

This is a great opportunity to be creative in prevention efforts to protect our youth, strengthen our community, and promote the health of our County. Some restrictions apply.
