This discretionary grant program supports student-planned projects to prevent alcohol and other drug abuse and related behaviors, and to promote the development of comprehensive school health-related projects. FY 2014/2015 represents the 26th year of this grant program. We anticipate another mini-grant competition in the fall of 2015.
The DPI administers the student mini-grants funded each year.
Funding priority goes to projects that
- have a high degree of educational value,
- have potential of extending beyond the life of the grant,
- will help students make connections between alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse (ATODA) issues and related youth risk behaviors such as traffic safety (or unsafe driving behaviors), unsafe sexual activity, and violence, and
- are student generated and oriented
