Community Integration of Problem Gambling Prevention Project
Funding from the Problem Gambling Casino Fund is being distributed specifically for effective enhancements in problem gambling/gambling disorder prevention services. For this project, up to $20,000 per year per organization may be requested, with the funds potentially renewable, contingent upon outcomes and availability of funding for up to two years.
Prevention Action Alliance recognizes that as the opportunity to gamble in Ohio grows, so does the need for local communities to implement local solutions. Additionally, Prevention Action Alliance understands the difficulties community partners may have in addressing growing and emerging issues, such as problem gambling. The “Community Integration of Problem Gambling Prevention (CIPGP) Project” will reduce barriers to addressing problem gambling by allowing participants to select their own level of participation, while building capacity for the future.
