Capacity for Prevention Stipend

The Capacity for Prevention Stipend provides an opportunity for community organizations to enhance capacity in their communities. These grants are intended to increase the number and quality of prevention strategies used in your community and to foster innovative approaches for promoting a prevention message. The focus of these stipends will be to address substance use, problem gambling, suicide, or other behavioral health prevention efforts.

The Capacity for Prevention Stipend is coordinated by Prevention Action Alliance and made possible with funding from the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.
