Grants of approximately $90,000 to Anne Arundel County, Maryland nonprofit organizations to develop and implement programs and strategies to mitigate underage drinking and alcohol-related accidents in the community. Applicants are required to attend the pre-proposal workshop prior to submitting an application.

The Anne Arundel County Department of Health (AACDOH) will award one Maryland Strategic Prevention Framework (MSPF) Community Implementation Grant to a community organization to lead the Northern Lights Against Substance Abuse (NLASA) Coalition. NLASA is the Northern Anne Arundel County Strategic Prevention Framework (NAACSPF) coalition. The Awardee will assess community needs, build community capacity, create and maintain a strategic plan, implement environmental prevention strategies, and evaluate coalition process and strategies. The funding must be used for the development and implementation of culturally competent, evidence‐based environmental prevention strategies and programs specifically designed to reduce the prevalence of underage drinking, youth binge drinking, and/or alcohol‐related crashes in the community at the local level. 

The goal of MSPF is to reduce the misuse of alcohol by youth and young adults in Maryland. Specifically, MSPF has targeted three substance‐related use and consequences as priorities:

  • High incidence of alcohol use by Maryland youth under age 21;
  • High incidence of binge drinking by youth 18 through 25 years old; and
  • High incidence of alcohol‐related crashes involving youth.
