New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton.
This document describes two programs that make up one of New Jersey's major initiatives to address the problem of substance abuse. The first program described is the Chemical Health Curriculum Development Grant Program, which is funded by a state appropriation; the second is the Substance Abuse Coordinator Grant Program, which combines federal funds with state appropriated funds to make approximately 70 grants to districts. It is noted that funds are to be used to make grants to districts to assist them in the development and the implementation of their substance abuse prevention curriculum as required by the New Jersey State Board of Education, and that these grants support the hiring of personnel responsible for the planning and coordination of substance abuse prevention programs and activities. Part I of the document sets forth guidelines for the two programs, including conditions for funding, eligibility, grant administration, standards, and assistance centers. Part II consists of directions for application for the two grant programs, as well as the forms. The appendices include a copy of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1986 and an excerpt from the U.S. Code. (ABL)
