A.S.A.P.: BUILDING SUSTAINABILITY FOR DRUG ABUSE PREVENTION
We are working to build a sustainable program through the following initiatives:
- Submitting grant applications for funding through local, state and federal sources and private foundations. These include the Town of Nantucket Health & Human Services, the Rainwater Charitable Foundation, Nantucket Children’s Charity Foundation, Southeast Center for Healthy Communities (Health Imperatives) through the Bureau of Substance Abuse Services (BSAS), Communities Mobilizing for Change on Alcohol (CMCA) MASS Department of Public Health, Bureau of Substance Abuse, and ONDCP/SAMHSA Drug Free Communities Support Program
- Requesting funding from the Community Foundation for Nantucket, the Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation and the Cape and Islands United Way
- Soliciting donations from private benefactors and island alcohol licensees and businesses
Influencing local, state and federal policy development to change the conditions on Nantucket that will improve healthy community norms and reduce the risk for substance abuse among residents and visitors.
