Coalition receives $652K award

SCHUYLER COUNTY--The Schuyler County Coalition on Underage Drinking and Drugs (SCCUDD) was awarded a federal Drug-Free Communities Support Program grant by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, in cooperation with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. The competitive grant will bring $125,000 in to the county each year for the next five years.
"This grant will be used to reduce underage drinking and youth drug use in Schuyler County," said Schuyler County Public Health Director Deb Minor. "We look forward to collaborating with the coalition, and the community, as the fiscal agent for this grant."
SCCUDD was one of only 16 organizations in the state to receive funding through this grant. Nationally, only 150 grants have been awarded at this time. The goals of the coalition under this grant are to establish and strengthen community collaboration in support of local efforts to prevent youth substance use.
"This award is an exciting opportunity to continue and strengthen the collaborative work with partners and the community to address the use of tobacco and vape products among local youth," said SCCUDD President Sarah Robbins.
SCCUDD is a group of community members, businesses and agencies that work to prevent, reduce and delay the onset of substance use among Schuyler County youth by collaborating with community partners, promoting prevention education and substance-free activities, and implementing environmental strategies. SCCUDD works to reduce youth use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs as they can cause lifelong problems. SCCUDD's vision is a connected community where youth have education, resources and drug-free options to help their journey to become happy, healthy adults.
