Funding Announcement - Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking (STOP Act)

The Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking (STOP) Act Notice of Funding Opportunity Announcement (NOFO) was recently released. Applications are due by Friday, March 3, 2023.

The anticipated award amount is $60,000 annually for 4 years.  This is an increase of $10,000 per year from previous grant cycles!

Current or former Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program recipients are strongly encouraged to apply.

The purpose of the STOP Act grant program is to prevent and reduce alcohol use among youth and young adults ages 12-20 in communities throughout the United States.
The program aims to:

(1) address norms regarding alcohol use by youth,

(2) reduce opportunities for underage drinking,

(3) create changes in underage drinking enforcement efforts,

(4) address penalties for underage use, and/or (5) reduce negative consequences associated with underage drinking (e.g., motor vehicle crashes, sexual assaults).

In addition, applicants will build on strategic plans that were developed under their DFC award utilizing the strategic prevention framework model, which aims to address underage drinking behaviors.
