Drug-Free Coalition Awards $97,028 in Grants

The Drug-Free Coalition of Tippecanoe County awarded grants totaling $97,028 to 14 community agencies that work to prevent and reduce substance abuse in Tippecanoe County at their annual meeting on Wednesday, August 3, 2011.

The Drug-Free Coalition awards grants using funds collected from counter-measure fees, which can be assessed by courts in alcohol or drug criminal cases. The fees are divided between prevention, treatment and law enforcement programs that address the needs of Tippecanoe County residents. A needs-assessment is conducted each year by the Coalition to determine what programs will be funded.
The Drug-Free Coalition of Tippecanoe County brings together a cross-section of the community in a countywide effort to reduce youth and adult use and the negative impact of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD) through multiple strategies across multiple sectors.
