The City of Beattyville is the fiscal agent for the People Encouraging People Coalition. The coalition serves the city of Beattyville and Lee County, Kentucky, a rural area with a population of approximately 7,000.

To achieve those goals, the coalition will implement the following strategies:
1) support clerk/server training and compliance checks;
2) implement community alcohol, tobacco, and other drug prevention training;
3) continue process and outcome evaluation for all coalition activities;
4) support and implement science-based approaches and institute model curricula in local school;
