State AODA Program Grant

The Department of Public Instruction’s (DPI) Student Service/Prevention and Wellness (SSPW) Team is pleased to announce the 2023-25 Competition for State Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (AODA) Program Grants.

The DPI’s AODA program, first authorized under Chapter 331, Laws of 1979, is designed to help local school districts utilize their staff and program resources to develop comprehensive AODA programs. The DPI assists school districts in developing comprehensive AODA programs that encompass both prevention and intervention services. Prevention programs are designed to help students avoid or minimize future alcohol and other drug use problems. In contrast, intervention programs are designed to help students who are already experiencing problems. Resources are provided to districts in four general categories: training, technical assistance, information dissemination, and grants. The discretionary grant program supports the development and expansion of district-wide comprehensive kindergarten through grade 12, alcohol and other drug abuse prevention and early intervention programming as part of a coordinated school health program.

These two-year grants (equal funding for each year 2023-24 and 2024-25) will allow public school districts in the state to apply in the following funding categories:

  • Districts with enrollment less than 3,000 for up to $15,000 per year
  • Districts with enrollment equal to or greater than 3,000 for up to $25,000 per year
  • Consortia for up to $25,000 per year with no member eligible for more than $4,000

All grants submitted to by 4:30 p.m. on April 21, 2023, will be reviewed. The application, guidelines, scoring rubric, and the recorded grant writer’s webinar can be found on the AODA webpage.
