#PUSH4Prevention Community Stipend

We at Prevention Action Alliance are pleased to announce the return of the #PUSH4Prevention Community Stipend!

The #PUSH4Prevention Community Stipend, coordinated by the Ohio Center for Coalition Excellence and Ohio College Initiative at Prevention Action Alliance, is made possible with funding from the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.

This funding provides an opportunity for community coalitions and/or college campuses to enhance or implement environmental strategies in their community. These grants are intended to increase the number and quality of environmental strategies used in coalitions and campuses and to foster innovative approaches for promoting a prevention message at the local level. The primary focus of these stipends will be to address substance misuse.

$20,000 is available as part of the #PUSH4Prevention Community Stipend. $10,000 is dedicated to community coalitions, and another $10,000 is reserved for college campuses. Applicants may only submit one project application for up to $2,500. Up to $20,000 will be funded. Read the request for proposals for full details.

Questions? Email requests@preventionactionalliance.org. All answers to questions will be posted here. Additional information, including application instructions, will be posted here.

Please note that the deadline for #PUSH4Prevention Community Stipend applications has been extended to November 16th.
