Community Drug Abuse Prevention Grant Program

The Community Drug Abuse Prevention Grant Program is available for the purpose of bringing an age appropriate, innovative and fact based educational program to student, parents and community members. The message is limited to the dangers and effects of the illegal use of prescription drugs, illegal street drugs, synthetic drugs and underage drinking.

Since its inception in 1987, the Office of Attorney General (OAG) Grant Program has awarded more than $1,903,600 to parent and community nonprofit organizations across Pennsylvania. The OAG Grant Program is currently funded from the Substance Abuse Education and Demand Reduction Fund established by Act 198 of 2002.

The Office of Attorney General must continue drug education especially during these uncertain times. The grant application is now available for the fiscal year 2020-2021.

The health and safety of all communities is OAG highest priority.  Due to health concerns related to the coronavirus it is important that all educational events are CDC compliant, this includes, wearing masks, washing hands and using hand sanitizers.  When applying please specify in detail how you will be organizing the event to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Again, thank you for your continued support in the fight against drug abuse and addiction.
