The Jamestown Substance Abuse Prevention Task Force has funds available for substance abuse prevention projects. Our intention is to fund programs that have a clearly defined substance abuse prevention component. Prevention programs may be educational in nature or alternate activities such as recreational, social and cultural events. Projects may teach problem-solving and decision-making skills, increase self-esteem and encourage positive group interaction. Hopefully, these programs will promote healthy attitudes and decrease the likelihood of substance abuse.
We are particularly interested in supporting programs that have obtained funding from a variety of sources as well as those that have a good chance of being self-sustaining in the future. Should the proposal be approved for funding by the Task Force, an evaluation form will be expected to be submitted within two weeks of the completion of the program. The maximum amount that the Task Force generally approves for funding is $500.00. Please call Laura Hosley, Coordinator, at 423-3317 if you have any questions.
