Mt Ascutney Prevention Partnership



Building a Prevention Center of Excellence

To our trusted grantees and community partners, we regretfully do not have a FY23 subawarding process in place at this time. This is due to changes within the VT Department of Substance Use and how they fund Vermont's Prevention Infrastructure. It is our hope that we can work to build a pool of prevention funds that are not VT DSU dependant and launch our RFA process again, to sustain the good work of your programs.
