GCASA receives two Drug Free Community grants

Maryann Bowman, GCASA's Director Of Prevention announced today, August 27, 2008 that SAMHSA, the Federal Substance Abuse and Menthal Health Services Administration has notified GCASA that it will be awarding grants for Drug Free Communities in both Genesee and Orleans Counties beginning October 1, 2008.

Here is the email which Maryann sent to GCASA staff:

Hi Everyone,

I have some great news to share with all of you. Genesee and Orleans County prevention departments would proudly like to announce that we received the Drug Free Communities grant for both counties. This means federal funding for the next five years to continue on with the coalition work we have done and have been very successful at. I am so proud to have a staff that is so dedicated and worked very hard in putting many hours into making these grants a reality.

Since January we applied for four substantial grants: The Regional Resource Center for Genesee, Drug Free Communities-Genesee and Orleans and the STOP grant for Genesee. To date we’ve received three out of the four…not bad…we’re on a roll.

Give your prevention staff at GCASA a “high five” when you see them. They deserve it.

Remember we’re the best in the country.

See you, Maryann
