WEST CHESTER (February 24) – State Senator Andy Dinniman reminded municipalities, schools, law enforcement organizations, community groups, nonprofits, colleges and universities, and other organizations that the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) is now accepting applications for grants to reduce underage and dangerous drinking.

“Underage and irresponsible drinking can impact the entire community,” Dinniman said. “And these grants can go a long way in reducing underage drinking and alcohol abuse while improving the quality of life for all residents.”

The funding, which comes through the PLCB’s Bureau of Alcohol Education, is intended for programs that focus on proven strategies to discourage and reduce both underage and dangerous drinking.

The grant cycle is for up to two years, from July 2017 through June 2019, with a maximum award of $20,000 per year and $40,000 over two years. Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis and are subject to the availability of funds, and grant amounts will be determined by the bureau.

The PLCB sets aside about $2 million per grant cycle, and initiatives funded in previous years include increased police patrols, social norms campaigns, Parents Who Host, Lose the Most campaigns, college alcohol assessment surveys, online alcohol education programs, peer training, and more.   

The deadline to apply is 4 p.m. Friday, March 31, 2017. Detailed information – including a Grant Application Instruction Guide, answers to frequently asked questions, and access to PLCB online application system (PLCB+) – is available on the grants page of the PLCB website, http://www.lcb.pa.gov.

All grant applications must be submitted through the online system.

There is no limit to the number of organizations from a single county or municipality that may apply for grants, but each must be a separate entity, and only one grant will be awarded per organization.
