Grants of up to $20,000 per year to Pennsylvania IHEs, nonprofit organizations, for-profits, agencies, and other qualified entities for programs to mitigate irresponsible consumption of alcoholic beverages. Funding is intended to support the development of innovative strategies that discourage underage and dangerous drinking and promote responsible alcohol consumption by those of legal drinking age.

Grant-funded initiatives have included 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.

Requests from Non-Enforcement Applicants:

Grant projects and activities should focus on the development of innovative and comprehensive programs to address underage drinking, dangerous drinking by those who are of legal drinking age, and/or to promote responsible alcohol consumption by those of legal drinking age. If the program is not innovative, then it must be evidence-based, or evidence informed. Eligible Applicants are required to include an assessment to measure the program’s effectiveness and are encouraged to establish partnerships with other organizations to promote such programs.

Requests from Enforcement Applicants:

  • Projects and activities must focus on increased enforcement of applicable laws to reduce underage drinking and dangerous drinking by those who are of legal drinking age.
  • Mandatory public service announcements, advertising, town hall meetings: Applicants are required to demonstrate proactive enforcement. This effort could consist of Public Service Announcements (PSA’s), Advertising, and/or Town Hall Meetings. Town Hall Meetings should be attended by interest groups; liquor licensees and staff, University/College personnel, Greek life representatives, community groups, business owners, and others interested in making their communities safer. The intent is to build collaboration within the community and to inform the public of your efforts. These efforts must occur during the first reporting period each grant year. All Advertisements and PSA’s must be pre-approved by the PLCB. 
  • Enforcement applicants must fulfill mandatory training requirements (see Additional Eligibility below for further details.) 
  • There is also a mandatory educational component; funded projects must be directed to students and/or youth under the age of 21.

Priority will be given to those applications proposing novel, high-impact projects, especially those utilizing social media and/or other technology-driven concepts.
