Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2001, $100,000)

The Town of Glastonbury is the fiscal agent for the Glastonbury Alcohol and Drug Council. The coalition serves the Town of Glastonbury, which is a suburb of Hartford with a population of about 30,000 residents. The goals of the coalition are to 1) reduce youth substance abuse among youth and, over time, among adults by addressing the factors in a community that serve to increase the risk of substance abuse and the factors that serve to minimize the risk of substance abuse and 2) strengthen the collaboration among communities, governments, and private non-profit agencies to support community coalition efforts to prevent and reduce substance abuse. To achieve these goals, the coalition will implement the following strategies:
1) recruit new membership and strengthen the coalition;
2) raise community awareness about youth substance abuse in Glastonbury;
3) support and promote alternative drug-free activities for youth; and
4) promote compliance with existing laws and policies concerning alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, insuring appropriate enforcement of these laws and policies.
