Washington Drug and Alcohol Commission would like to Announce Gambling Mini Grants that are available.
The Purpose of the mini-grant program is intended to facilitate a means by which individuals and agencies can educate their local community on issues related to problem and compulsive gambling. The primary objectives are to establish and enhance collaborative relationships and increase awareness and knowledge in the area of problem and compulsive gambling; work collaboratively on system-wide efforts to increase referral and engagement into treatment for problem gambling; and implement activities directed toward changing individual and community norms regarding problem gambling behaviors.
Eligible applicants are Pennsylvania organizations or individuals with a Federal Tax ID number located in Washington, PA and serving residents of Washington county. Individual applicants may utilize their social security number if they are a private provider. All grant applicants must include a copy of their most recent “Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification W-9 Form” with their application.
The applications are to be accepted on an ongoing basis throughout the fiscal year (July 1-June 30). An applicant can apply for one or more grants per fiscal year up to a total of $5000. All grant activities must be completed prior to the end of the fiscal year (June 30, 2015) in which the grant was awarded.
All mini-grant awards are contingent on the availability of funds. Applications are to be processed on a first come first serve basis.
