Education and Skill Building to Prevent Problem Gambling

Prevention Action Alliance is pleased to announce the availability of funds for the prevention of problem gambling, thanks to the Ohio Problem Gambling Advisory Board (PGAB), OhioMHAS, and Ohio for Responsible Gambling (ORG). PGAB, OhioMHAS and ORG recognize that one of the highest success rates in influencing community behavior is through the efforts of community coalitions.

Education and Skill-Building to Prevent Problem Gambling: A Community Coalitions Project provides funds to plan for or enhance existing problem gambling prevention efforts across Ohio. Up to $15,000 per year per coalition may be requested and funds could potentially be renewed a second-year contingent upon outcomes and availability of funding. Community coalitions, ADAMH boards, OhioMHAS-certified providers, or groups affiliated with public health districts or educational institutions may all apply. Read the RFP for more information about who is eligible and how to apply.
