Prevention Center of Excellence Grant
Together, we can build a prevention network.
NVRH has teamed up with Umbrella to implement the Prevention Center of Excellence’s Grant program in the Northeast Kingdom.
This program is a one-year grant award with goals to reduce underage drinking, high-risk alcohol consumption, marijuana and tobacco misuse, prescription drug and stimulant misuse, illicit stimulant and opioid use. Funds will go towards staffing, analysis, workforce development, and evaluation of archival data. Funds will also include sub-awards that will go towards local partners whose missions support the goals outlined above. The request for applications is now available.
