Community How To Guide On Underage Drinking Prevention: Self Sufficiency.
National Association of Governors' Highway Safety Representatives.
When it comes to conducting an underage drinking prevention program, most people think of the planning and implementation activities that are needed. The one question many do not answer, however, is how will the organization obtain the funding that is necessary for those planning and implementation activities, particularly over the long-term. An organization can have the best ideas in the world, but if there is no funding for those ideas, the ideas die. This guide details the various types of funding that are available including government grants, private sector funding, in-kind contributions, and funding that can be obtained from earmarked funds such as fees, fines, assessments, and dedicated taxes. Because most organizations have difficulty writing a proposal that can help them obtain needed funding, appendixes in this booklet includes a "Proposal Writing Short Course," provided by the Foundation Center. A proposal checklist and evaluation form will also assist the organization in reviewing the final product. In addition to the tools, the booklet also lists specific resources where organizations conducting underage drinking prevention programs may be able to obtain funding to keep their efforts going.
