Grants to Massachusetts public agencies and nonprofit or community-based organizations for programs addressing driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended for training, education, and prevention programs.

PET programs (prevention, education, and training) will focus on providing information that will help to prevent OUI from occurring; educate various target audiences about the dangers and consequences of OUI; and train personnel who will be involved in assisting victims after and OUI. PET programs may apply for funding for first time offender programs (i.e. below legal drinking age) but not repeat or perpetual offenders.

As an example, MOVA is seeking to fund the following types of projects:

  • Public Awareness via cable, web, and other technology to educate about the dangers of OUI;
  • Youth Peer-to-Peer Programs to educate teenage drivers about the consequences of substance abuse impaired driving
  • Programs designed to diminish recidivism by exposing youth to the real-life consequences of bad driving decisions
  • Training for those who respond directly to victims and survivors of OUI crashes, such as police officers, victim support workers, and other emergency services personnel
