The Letcher County substance abuse prevention coalition, United for Substance Abuse Prevention (USAP), is accepting requests for programs to be included in its budgets for Fiscal Year 2014. Budgets for this time period will total $5,000 from UNITE for projects completed between June and December and approximately $15,000 from the State of Kentucky for the entire fiscal year. Potential recipients may submit an action plan and budget to USAP by March 29. Requests must include activities that address prevention and/or treatment of abuse of substances, alcohol, prescription drugs and illicit drugs. A detailed budget must accompany the request. Selection of requests for funding will take place in April. The regular meeting is scheduled for April 4. Recipients of USAP funds are to attend monthly meetings and give a report on their activities.
Action Plan and budget forms are available from Angela Gibson, USAP secretary, at the Jenkins FRYSC. Contact Gibson at angela. gibson@ Jenkins.kyschools.us or 832-0009.
