Funding for 澳门线上赌城注册 first came from the Drug Free Communities Grant; a Federal Grant which assisted with the creation of the coalition and the development strategies for community-wide substance abuse prevention. The 21st Century State Incentive Grant focused on reducing substance use and abuse with community-wide environmental strategies and provided afterschool programming. This two-pronged approach has been the organizational structure since 澳门线上赌城注册's inception.
Throughout the years, 澳门线上赌城注册 has received the following Federal and State grants to work towards providing healthy and positive choices in the community, while decreasing substance use:
21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) - Cohorts 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 12
Drug Free Communities - Years 1-5 & 6-10
STOP Act Now
Strategic Prevention Framework
Money from local foundations has been received along with business grants, including: Blue Envelope Health Fund, City of Casper Promotions, the McMurry Foundation, Walmart, the Wyoming Community Foundation, and Zimmerman Foundation. Additional support has come in the form of donations, volunteers, partnerships, and community involvement.
澳门线上赌城注册 members meet monthly to share their personal and/or respective agency's efforts toward the Coalition's mission. Monthly meeting allow for consistent assessment of coalition goals and activities, provides the opportunity for members and their agencies to seek coalition support, and helps ensure agencies' efforts aren't being duplicated.
