Healthy Lamoille Valley’s next coalition meeting is on Tuesday, March 12th from 6:00-7:30 pm at GMTCC. The Prevention Data Meet Up will provide opportunity to look at data by substance from multiple sources as part of our recent needs assessment process.
There are four primary goals for this meeting:
- Increase community awareness around substances that impact area youth.
- Identify 2-3 substances as a focus for our upcoming Drug Free Communities Grant application. DFC provides grants up to $125,000 annually for up to 10 year. This could have a huge positive impact for area youth!
- Identify potential areas of risk that should be addressed in our FY 20 workplans.
- Build stronger connections to support area youth and reduce youth substance use.
