Grants to Pennsylvania nonprofit statewide organizations for substance misuse educational programs. Funding is intended to support programs at regional and statewide scales that heighten the awareness of youth, caregivers of youth, employers, and employees regarding the risks and dangers of substance abuse.

The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency’s (PCCD) Office of Justice Programs announces the availability of Substance Abuse Education and Demand Reduction (SAEDR) Category Two and Category Three funds. These funds are designed to educate the public about the dangers of substance use and/or reduce demand for substances under Categories Two and Three.

Category Two funds are intended to support statewide or regional programs to educate youth, caregivers of youth, and employers about the dangers of substance use; and increase the awareness of the benefits of a drugfree Pennsylvania through media-related efforts that may include public service announcements, public awareness campaigns, and media literacy. Special consideration will be given to projects that focus on the use of opiates within the Commonwealth.

Category Two Program Objectives:

  • Increase awareness among youth and employers related to the dangers of substance use;
  • Decrease substance use problems.

Category Three funds are intended to support statewide or regional programs to educate employers, unions, and employees about the dangers of substance use in the workplace and provide comprehensive drug-free workplace programs and technical resources for businesses. This includes but is not limited to training for working parents to keep their children drug-free.

Category Three Program Objectives:

  • Increase awareness in the workplace of the dangers of substance misuse.
  • Increase the resources available to employers to improve their comprehensive drugfree workplace programs.
  • Improve employee attendance.
  • Decrease workplace incidents attributable to substance misuse.

For this funding announcement, an expansion is considered to include additional target population(s) or audience(s); geographical area(s); or a new program or programs.
