Local Organization Receives STOP Grant

Posted: Updated:

The Buffalo County group, Positive Pressure, has been awarded a grant in the amount of $192,032.

The grant, provided by The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, will be doled out in the amount of $48,258 over four years.

Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking (STOP) grants are given to programs that work "to prevent and reduce alcohol use among youth age 12-20 in communities throughout the United States."

"We are excited to have consistent funding from SAMHSA for the next for years," said Jessica Carter, the groups coalition coordinator. "This funding will play an important role in the work of substance abuse prevention in Buffalo County."

Community Connections of Lincoln County in North Platte is the only other Nebraska group to receive a STOP grant this year.
